    @GodHatesMe At least it can be fixed. If Windows decides to break you need to reinstall, because of the lack of log files and informative error messages.

    CentOS, Linux 3.1!!!!!!
    We use the same distro/kernel where I work, and IT support for it is very, very shit.

    WTF is up with companies using this combination? I get that people think CentOS is a shittier, free version of RHEL, but damn. Use Fedora for fuck's sake, at least it's using a relatively recent kernel! Is there some kind of cheapass handbook out there that recommends this?

    @nosoup4u what about openSUSE Leap? Essentially SLES but as a community project. Heck they are working on a direct upgrade path from Leap to SLES atm. Tumbleweed is too fast moving for a school environment IMO so I would only recommend that for power users.

    @Zennoe Never used it, honestly. My biggest frustration with CentOS is that a lot of the stuff it comes with is really old.
    That wouldn't be a problem if our IT guys knew their asses from a hole in the ground, so I guess I'm misdirecting my label of "shitty".

    They say a man's only as good as his tools, but that's not always the case.

    @nosoup4u you should use it my friend. they are on kernel 4.2 but backported quite a lot of drivers. software is quite recent on release as well.
