We would like to take a minute on this scorching June afternoon to notify you that UNC-Chapel Hill has launched Tar Heel Linux. The school started with an operating system called CentOS, which is a widely-used, open-source version of Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux, and built on its codebase. Until recently, even CRdaily ran on CentOS.
The distribution is packed full of goodies for UNC researchers/faculty and students, and UNC Information Technology Services says that the software is compatible with CCI machines.
We are excited to see UNC adopt free software. When the fall semester comes around, be sure to check out TarHeel Linux. Yum!
