    CentOS 7 for 64-bit x86 general availability

    CentOS 7 for 64-bit x86 General Availability

    We would like to announce the general availability of CentOS 7 for 64-bit x86 compatible machines. This is the first release for CentOS 7 and is version marked as 7.0-1406. Since the upstream EL7 release, there have been some updates released - these have been built and are being pushed to the CentOS mirror network at the moment. They will be available within the next 24 hrs. From this point on we will aim to deliver all updates within 24 to 48 hours of upstream releases. For the first time, this release was built from sources hosted at git.centos.org

    CentOS Recommends:

    Various installation images are available for installing CentOS. Which image you need to download depends on your installation environment. All of these images can either be burned on a DVD or dd’ed to an USB memory stick.

    If you are unsure which image to use, pick the DVD image. It allows selecting which components you want to install.
    But that assumes that want to install it.

    If your not sure what you want, or you just want to look at it and you don't want to install it, get one of the live DVDs. If you don't know whether you want Gnome or KDE, don't worry, either one will be Okay, or better, download and burn them both, and compare them.

    Does that DVD .iso image file create a LiveDVD bootable disc?

    The "DVD" iso, CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-DVD.iso, is not a live DVD, but you can install all CentOS options from it. Users who understand all of the options and want to install, prefer this. Newbies, who don't understand the options, are better off with a Live DVD.

    CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-GnomeLive.iso, and CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-KdeLive.iso are Live DVDs.
