Those of you who have been contemplating Centos 7, we’ve just turned up a new shell server with Centos 7 and it is available for your use although there aren’t a lot of applications installed yet.
Presently the only way to access it graphically is with x2go, and then you must use either Mate or KDE desktop. The Gnome is Gnome 3 and presently doesn’t work without accelerated graphics which remote desktop applications can not provide. However, Mate is a continuation of Gnome 2 and works much as Gnome 2 worked under Centos 6 as used on shellx.
The server name is centos7.eskimo.com. Your same login, password, files, etc, will be present.
