CentOS isn't really useful for me as a private person. But I needed to run ModelSim - a Software which officially runs only on Windows, MacOS and RHEL6. On my current distribution it doesn't work out of the box. I tried another distro in a VM - fail.

So I've installed CentOS 6.10 in a VM (with Qemu/KVM) and it is worked really well.

Installation was easy, no garbage was installed and it runs really smoothly even in a VM (I think newer VirtIO and QXL drivers get backported, but I'm not sure).

So for my case I can say that it is compatible with RedHat. epel repos can be enabled quickly. Great work!

I am using Centos 6.10 64bit on all of my server machine and really love it.
I was a little disappointed at Centos 7 with changes to some commands on the console that I usually use in Centos 6, it seems I have to adapt a little by changing the memorization of the console command
