today I converted all my production servers from Whitebox Enterprise Linux 3.0 to CentOS3.3 due to the fact that I was not satisfied with the updates that were provided with WBEL3.0.

The process is really simple, see this guide written by donavan

This should be classified under the Guides section. I'm moving accordingly.

I would also recommend to anyone else out there who is using WBEL a move to CentOS.

I am the new CentOS-4 project lead and I can tell you that there is currently a CentOS-4beta for i386 ... and there are currently packages being built for ia64 and x86_64 .... and coming soon to CentOS-4 is s390 and s390x arches ... and in maybe even for the ppc arch.

I had already shifted all my boxes from WBEL to CentOS because of the same issues that ChrisW and Robert83 mentioned before I signed on to be a developer in the CentOS project ... so my recommendation to use CentOS is not based on my being a CentOS Developer, but based on it being the best product.
