    Guess either they aren't releasing or haven't compiled the minimal install (think they call it their ServerCD) one yet. Every repository I've looked at hasn't had it.
    Will have to grab the netinstall to try out...

    They haven't pushed a minimum install yet.

    Had a feeling that probably was what it was. I couldn't see them making a major version jump like that without a minimal/server setup CD/ISO.
    I'll just wait till they push it out and then give it a run on a VPS. Thinking about starting a "Funny Quotes" site up and that might work out well... I'm sure I'll have a few I could add once I started using it. :whistle:

    Something to do with size requirements, they're struggling to fit it all in.

    "= Given the popularity of the minimal install ISO in CentOS-6, we are
    going to try and deliver a minimal install ISO for CentOS-7 as well.
    One key challenge here is that the installer image has grown to nearly
    360MB, and getting enough content into a CD size image is proving hard."

    Other than the upgrade path, which is nice, I don't see anything really that tremendous in the OS that I really want or require at the moment. Maybe I'm missing something? systemd is a nice addition, but is that it?

    I'd say that this CentOS version, like most server operating system updates, is less about tremendous feature-sets that will make you want to upgrade than it is about being an evolutionary step in a platform that offers long-term predictability and stability. There's no big reason to upgrade now, or even soon. But eventually, it will make a lot of sense to be running the newest version, if not for being on a newer Linux kernel then at least to evolve forward before update support expires. No rush at all now. But eventually...

    That + the containerization improvements. I think the next few months are going to be very interesting as people really get their teeth into the rapid deployment possibilities and the knowledge becomes more widespread.

    same here https://community.centminmod.com/threads/centos-7-0-install-on-virtualbox-guest-server.730/ :)

    systemd is going to take some getting use to for folks like me that never used it :)

    having 3.10 kernel is great though to implement some newer TCP level performance tweaks etc. But you could do that with CentOS 6.5 and main line kernels and using Oracle Linux 6.x UEK Kernels already.

    It's about time they have an upgrade path. That is a HUGE new feature.

    MariaDB is actually default in 7.1 but if you want the latest you will need to do what @Nuno said anyways.
