CentOS 8.1 64 bit: Installation, software and memory, disk usage

 

CentOS (/ˈsɛntɒs/, from Community Enterprise Operating System) is a Linux distribution that provides a free, community-supported computing platform functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).[8][9] In January 2014, CentOS announced the official joining with Red Hat while staying independent from RHEL,[10] under a new CentOS governing board.

The first CentOS release in May 2004, numbered as CentOS version 2, was forked from RHEL version 2.1AS. CentOS version 7.0 officially supports only the x86-64 architecture, while versions older than 7.0-1406 also support IA-32 with Physical Address Extension (PAE). As of December 2015, AltArch releases of CentOS 7 are available for the IA-32 architecture, Power ISA, and for the ARMv7hl and AArch64 variants of the ARM architecture. Building of CentOS 8 started at May 2019. CentOS 8 was released on 24 September 2019. (from Wikipedia)
