I agree if by "latest" you mean either of latest 5, latest 6, latest 7.
Still, it would be good to realize what CentOS latest 7 resembles to on
the side of upstream, meaning RHEL 7.x - which "x"? Hypothetically, I know
that binary only distributed "something" works on RHEL 7.2. Will it be
reasonable to assume it will work on my "binary compatible" CentOS? If it
is CentOS 7.2, I wouldn't have trouble concluding it will work. If it is
7.1234567... I'm lost (my number comes from sarcasm, I learned the
year/month origin already ;-) Sorry about trivial argument which I bet was
repeated by many already. On the other hand why I'm arguing about CentOS 7
which I downgraded to workstation use only and servers are being migrated
to FreeBSD (sorry about mentioning - this time will be really the last
one) as CentOS 5 or CentOS 6 are phased out.

Just my $0.02
