Now that the CentOS 7 Linux kernel-based operating system has been officially released, the time has come to enjoy some screenshots of this beautiful distribution of Linux based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
Today we’ll start our series of CentOS 7 screenshot tours with the standard Live CD edition, which is built around the modern GNOME desktop environment with the controversial GNOME Shell user interface.
The Live CD has been designed to fit on a CD, but it can also be deployed to a USB thumb drive of 1GB or higher capacity. Unfortunately, it will only boot on computers that support the 64-bit instruction set architecture.
The good news, for some of you, is that the GNOME Shell interface has been tweaked to look like the GNOME Classic session, featuring the highly-acclaimed two-panel layout. A modern main menu has also been implemented.
Except for the Mozilla Firefox web browser, the CentOS 7 Live CD includes only GNOME-specific applications, such as the Gedit text editor, Disks disk manager, Totem video player, Cheese webcam viewer, and Nautilus file manager.
For more details about the CentOS 7 release, do not hesitate to take a look at our detailed announcement. You can download the CentOS 7 Live CD right now from Softpedia, along with two DVD editions, a KDE Live CD, and a net install CD.
