What AMD did though was create a x86 compatible 64-bit instruction set to allow backwards compatibility. Itanium's IA-64 instruction set was not backwards compatible.

That was what I meant, but you're right to correct me smile.gif

This might be nitpicking, but wasn't it HP that was working on the base Itanium architecture and then partnered with intel on it?

According to wikipedia you'd be right - but I didn't realise this until you posted.

Didn't see this answered so decided to join and chime in.

Fedora is used as a pseudo beta platform for RHEL. Changes in Fedora may or may not make it into RHEL. Fedora is on a 6 months release schedule (give or take) and releases are only supported until release + 2 + 1 month. So Fedora 18 goes EOL on 1/17/2014 as Fedora 20 was released on 12/17/2013.

RHEL is branched from a Fedora line/lines. In the Case of 6.x I believe it was branched from Fedora 15/16. 10 year life cycle (maybe longer for $$$)

CentOS is rebuilt from the RHEL srpms. They basically take out anything to do with RH or packages that are not needed under CentOS such as the RHN packages and release. Same life cycle as RHEL but not official support. Also, in cases where RHEL releases have dramatic changes it may take longer for a Centos build to be release.

With great excitement I'd like to announce that we are joining the Red
Hat family. The CentOS Project ( http://www.centos.org ) is joining
forces with Red Hat. Working as part of the Open Source and Standards
team ( http://community.redhat.com/ ) to foster rapid innovation
beyond the platform into the next generation of emerging technologies.
Working alongside the Fedora and RHEL ecosystems, we hope to further
expand on the community offerings by providing a platform that is
easily consumed, by other projects to promote their code while we
maintain the established base.
