Heavens no... I love my CentOS 5 server. I going to try and keep it 
around as long as possible. I've got another machine in the rack that 
I've got CentOS 7 installed on, but there are differences in that OS and 
the items running on it that I don't like at all. SELinux comes to mind...

No, I definitely have plans on running CentOS5 for while long. Mostly 
because there's an issue with one of the web apps I'm running on my C5 
server that is having problems running correctly on C7. I haven't 
figured out why yet.
