[K12OSN] CentOS or Scientific Linux?

A lot of us don't do Facebook, for a lot of reasons.  But to answer your 
question about K12Linux, I'd suggest CentOS 6.2.  Looks like they just 
needed to figure out RH's changes for v6, and that they've now done that.

Just as a test, one time I took a RHEL 5 box running NMIS and pointed it 
at the CentOS repositories (the subscription had ended a year ago, the 
box was non-production, so no real risk there).  The OS not only updated 
properly, but it looked just like CentOS 5 afterwards.  Continued to run 
beautifully.  Just one indication of how exact CentOS is with keeping 
with RHEL, and I like that.
