Hmm.  I use CentOS as my desktop OS, my laptop OS, my workdesk OS and
my work is also converting over (sometime RSN) to use CentOS as the
base OS for our application.

To repeat what has been said before (right here!): CentOS is just like
RHEL, an enterprise Linux distribution, suitable for anything from
laptops to desktops to enterprise-wide networked multi-server

I use vmware server to run Windows on CentOS.  (I will withhold my
personal opinion of using vmware-server to run anything on Windows, or
even just run /anything/ on Windows at all, other than that which does
not run anywhere else.)
