One thing to note about CentOS (and other Red Hat derived distributions)
is that even though the kernel version appears to be quite dated, Red
Hat spends considerable energy back-porting fixes, especially
security-related fixes, into those older kernels. So they're not as
"old" as they appear to be.

Being used to the regular updates of Ubuntu etc, the one thing that did surprise me was the Kernel version and age of the OS.  However, I suppose that this only really needs to be updated to support major new pieces of hardware, and that stability is the most important thing in the broadcast world.  Is it worth me taking a look at the beta CentOS 7 version of the appliance or should I forget this for now?
