CentOS is a Linux distribution that differs from other options available by focusing on the business environment, although it can be used quietly by any user without any problems.The goal of developers is to provide a fully binary code-compliant operating environment, allowing easy adaptation to any type of hardware, without forgetting applications that ultimately make the difference between choosing between different operating systems. .CentOS's biggest advantage over other available distributions is the proximity developers have to the user community. It's quite easy to get in touch with them directly to exchange ideas and criticism about what should be improved in future releases, not to mention community mailing lists, forums and IRC chat.

- Intel Atom 230, Atom 330, Core 2 Duo, Centrino Core 2 Duo and Xeon;
- AMD Athlon 64, Athlon x2, Sempron64 and Opteron;
- Apple MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air
I386 verse (Link)

After downloading the correct version of the program, you have two options: either burn the downloaded file to a CD or DVD (which facilitates installation on multiple computers) or you can use programs like ISO2USB before, which allow you to test the system before you put it in the machine through any pendrive.CentOS comes with a number of proven applications that make life easier for those who want to go straight to the operating system after the installation is complete. Available names include OpenOffice.org version 3.1.1, Samba3x, and Freeradius 2, although the latter two are not installed as standard on the computer.
