by Jason Brooks
CentOS, the popular community-supported clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, hit Version 5.3 in March, packed with the improvements around virtualization, application development, security and storage that first appeared when RHEL 5.3 began shipping in January. What's more, CentOS 5.3 may be had without any subscription fees, which explains the growing popularity of CentOS as an operating system option for many hosting providers and cloud computing vendors.
