It's the most popular rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux minus the
trademarked logos etc. Updates are via yum as opposed to Red Hat Network
(fee based subscription). Same updates as RHEL as Red Hat publishes the
source for fixes which end up in the CentOS yum repos.
Like RHEL, it's meant for stability and doesn't have the latest greatest
bleeding edge stuff. Unlike Fedora, it also has a longer release cycle. If
those things appeal to you, it's a pretty decent server. I'd choose
something else personally for a desktop though.
