Anyone thinking of RHEL/CentOS 7 yet?

And if so are you on the CentOS mail list? It looks like the
relationship between Red Hat and CentOS is changing in a way that will
eventually make custom rebuilds easier for 3rd parties so it might be
possible to make a 'works as installed' version like the old K12LTSP.
And someone has already mentioned the possibility of a 32-bit build
that might be useful with LTSP.

Thinking about? Absolutely.

Expecting it to work anytime soon? No.

But I would love to hear about someone who succeeded in getting LTSP
working on the preview release.

My reason for mentioning it here is that they are organizing CentOS
SIGs to work on respins and distributions for special purposes, so
anyone capable of helping might want to get involved. I don't use it
myself anymore but always thought that the old k12ltsp version that,
up through CentOS5, just came up working on a 2-nic server was
fantastic and helped a lot of people who might not otherwise have been
able to use linux. It might be possible to re-create that kind of
installable distribution again.
