Yes, we use it with good effect on our 500+ node cluster at Duke.
It's currently running Centos-4. I think that the only issue is that
some of our developers require newer releases of a couple packages,
but it's easy enough to maintain a local yum repository with those
It's been a good stable platform for us.
