Scientific Linux

September 2, 2008

I knew of several linux distributions and flavours; however, till I saw this piece, I was not aware of the yummy sounding flavour called Scientific Linux:

I figured Fermilab naturally would use Linux, and found that Fermilab has its own distro: Fermi Linux. Its public site provides a nice window into a highly professional and focused usage of Linux. Within Fermi Linux, specific generations are known as Scientific Linux Fermi, each with version numbers and the code names Charm, Strange, Top, Bottom, Up, Feynmann, Wilson and Lederman.

Now you know which distribution I am going to try on my next desktop, don’t you?
