For their main cluster  they use SLC witch is a version of SL, so
another rebuild. For even more info look at .
But of course there are a lot of similarities and some rpms might be
used from other sources. But every department can pretty much decide
by their own, what they want to use. I know of a small Debian cluster
and even a Mac one. But if you would count all the machines you would
probably end up with, that most are SLC.
So no official CentOS @ Cern :( even if I know of 5 desktop installations.
