Just flipped the distro to SL from whatever, as usual. But, it works Da, just out of the box.
My main task is just surfing only, nothing more. Gave 9 out of 10 for simplicity that works where a bunch of couples top-rated failed either to boot or install.

Before I migrate to the 7-branch, I stay as long with 6 as I can. And once 6 is no longer supported, I'll consider Devuan.
Scientific Linux shows an overall good performance, comes with all necessary tools and software products. Since it is intended for the science community it is not perfectly prepared for multi-media usage, but its a great system for Databases, development, file services, Web-Server....... etc

I tried using it. There are no much special features when compared to Ubuntu.
I would prefer to use Ubuntu and install rest features by myself.
