Centos 5 == Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
For production quality, you can expect it to be pretty stable and I have
corporate customers running it successfully. It's one of our development
However, note mst's comments about the broken Perl on it. I found that quite
shocking considering it's supposed to be a premier Linux hosting platform.
As usual, compiling your own perl and Apache and providing your own PERL5LIB
dir per live application area is a sane way of going about delivering
standardised live applications you can roll out and support.

I've played with 6.06, 6.10, 7.04 and 7.10 versions on VMware - the 7.xx 
versions both get 'stuck' at the 'Running local boot scripts 
(/etc/rc.local)' output, which happens after the first login prompt, and 
requires a keyboard entry to 'push' it along. I don't know if this is a 
VM issue though, as I've not run either as production.

Any thoughts on CentOS 5 for production quality?
