1. There is a decent selection of software for CentOS / RHEL. Especially 
commercial software. If you are brave, many Fedora Core 3 packages will work 
on CentOS 4. However, if you are looking for the newest mp3 player or latest 
version of bzflag, fedora will most likely have it, CentOS won't.

2. There's a much smaller CentOS user base (I suspect). However, the HUGE 
amount of documentation, training classes, and info on the web about RHEL 
applies directly to CentOS.
