    I like Centos 4.1, it is stable, I have been running it and the RH Entreprise 4.1 for a while now. 4.1 Fixes some of the SATA controller issues with Intel ICH9 SATA chipset I believe. I had to upgrade to 4.1 on RedHat to be able to pickup the SATA Drive on a Dell PE 850.

    I like running 4.1 on x64, runs great. But I am not running it with a CP through.

    4.2 was just released. Mirrors are still updating though. Any released version of CentOS from my experience has been stable as a rock.

    We are running 32bit Centos v4.1 with cPanel and some 32bit and 64bit 4.1 installs with no control panel for dedicated server clients. No problems on any systems yet.

    Have no plans to dive in and try cPanel with 4.2 immediately though

    I see no reason to remain with CentOS 3.x when looking at the benefits of the 4.x releases.

    Running RHEL 4.2, which is the same as centos 4.2, on my own server with cpanel just fine

    can someone do few benchmark on CENTOS versions ?

    centos 3.x 32bit and 64bit
    centos 4.x 32bit and 64bit

    so it will be very easy to choose versions

    I'm currently running CentOS 4.2 on my test box. The 2.6 kernel works great for game servers I would go with CentOS 4.x, then you won't have to upgrade from CentOS 3.x to CentOS 4.x later on.

    Agreed, You might as well save some time and start out with '4'.

    But either way you should be fine. We run CentOS 3 with and without cpanel on the webservers and haven't had any problems.

    Just add another server with centos 4.2 64bit.
    There was few update already so launch yum update.
    Just noticed that you do not need import GPG key manually anymore... it will imported automatically.. nice small improvement...

    Didn't have any problem with centos 4.2 so far with DA.
    CPanel with 4.1 had no problem. I didn't try 4.2 or 64bit with cpanel yet and will not try in near future..

    Other control panel, I do not know. Since I don't have any.
