    Just realised it's almost 3 yrs since I first played with CentOS 7.x for Centmin Mod development testing. Since, then I've found CentOS 7.x to be the best version to use unless you have less than 1GB memory server due to CentOS 7.x minimum 1GB memory requirements or if you need to use CentOS 6.x 32bit for <512MB systems.

    So which CentOS version do you use now CentOS 6.x or CentOS 7.x when you have the choice ?

    Version 6 for me.
    Rock solid.
    Low memory footprint.
    No systemd :)

    Im using Centos 7 for 3 years, its time to appear something new, although i don't think it will take less than 2 years.

    Yum will rest in peace in the new RHEL, its time for DNF to shine.

    hope not that soon, need time to develop and test Centmin Mod for DNF package management instead of YUM. Though I have future plans for Centmin Mod to support Fedora with DNF and Cloudlinux.

    You can install DNF on Centos 7 to start testing it.

    I've been very happy with 6, but the next time I move to a new server, I will probably make the move over to 7. No particular reason (and that might not be a good thing!), but I think it will be about time by then to move on to the latest version.

    I prefer 6 too.
    • It's found on every host, good if I need to change
    • I don't know 7 advantages on performance and compatibility as well

    CentOS 7 is much better for performance overall, so if you have the resources, CentOS 7 > CentOS 6 :)
