The Laundry List
So here is a quick list of some of the other major changes/updates in CentOS 7:

Kernel updated to 3.10.0

Open VMware Tools and 3D graphics drivers out of the box – I can confirm this works great!

OpenJDK-7 as default JDK (nice upgrade but its time to give up on the OpenJDK, its just too far behind to be used in the enterprise)

In Place Upgrade from 6.5 to 7.0 (this one is iffy, even in pretty vanilla installs, you can tell this is a new process for them because its full of issues, still better to bite the bullet and do a fresh install if at all possible)

XFS as default file system (quite honestly I am a bit flabbergasted at this decision, we will be exploring this in a later article)

iSCSI and FCoE in kernel space (iSCSI target needs work but it ‘works’)

Support for 40G Ethernet Cards (an enterprise nice to have)

Supports installations in UEFI Secure Boot mode on compatible hardware (important on our increasingly secure desktop systems)
