CentOS-6.0 is here

The CentOS Development team is pleased to announce the availability of the CentOS LiveCD 6.0 for both i386 and x86_64 architectures. These LiveCD are based on CentOS-6.0 i386 and x86_64 distributions.

The CentOS-6.0 LiveCD is meant to be a Linux environment suited to be run directly from either CD media or USB storage devices. It does not need any persistent storage on a machine, which also makes it a suitable recovery environment.

Due to space constraints, it was not possible for them to include all the traditional desktop applications on the LiveCD. However you can though enjoy a Gnome basic desktop, view and modify pictures with gthumb and the Gimp, browsing the web with Firefox, send emails with Thunderbird and connect to your favorite Instant Messaging network with Pidgin.

The CentOS-6.0 LiveCD is released to all external mirrors and available for download now. List of mirrors is available at these urls :
