It is a redistributable distribution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) source code, and it has been revised based on RHEL. Known bugs are more reliable than other Linux distributions. CentOS fully comply with Red Hat’s redistribution policy and is committed to full functional compatibility with upstream products. CentOS’s modification of the components is mainly to remove Red Hat’s trademarks and artwork.
