When my home Kubuntu machine died, I set up a used Optiplex 980 and installed CentOS 7 (with GNOME). I'm no Linux expert by any stretch, but with a little Googling I've been able to install the couple of programs I need that aren't available through the included Application Installer. If there's a "con," having to do that would be it -- but this is an enterprise OS, not targeted to people like me, and the selection of software that it makes easily available is better than I'd expected. Bottom line: this distro's rock-solid performance is great.

Perfect OS for any production environment. From POS to virtualization hypervisors. Perfect for software development as it's really stable. It's 3.10 kernel is both up to date security wise and stable enough.

Really not much to say. It's RHEL without the price tag, what's more to ask?
