While CentOS 6.0 has yet to be released, the university researchers and scientists working on Scientific Linux have officially released Scientific Linux 6.0. Scientific Linux 6.0 is basically a community, binary build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0.

More information is also on the SL6 web-site. Scientific Linux is available in 32-bit and 64-bit builds.
