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.
