	I have a testbed machine triple-booting from time to time to F8, 
C5, and Ubuntu 7.10; after having run RH & clones since 7.1, I still 
prefer them; but I want something easier to keep up with for my wife to 
use after she outlives me, as I'm sure she will.

	One thing I find that you may not is that there are several apps 
not in the other distros -- mostly betas, to be sure; but I miss them 
when I don't have them. (She won't.)

	I do recommend, for that reason, that you start by dual-booting, 
preferably often, while you get used to the differences. Otherwise, 
though, yes, CentOS should suit you fine.
