I have had a lot of people request me to make a public base CentOS 5.3 64-bit EC2 AMI in all the AWS Regions. I can understand some of you would like to fire up a base instance and then make modifications and snapshot them into your own custom AMI’s. So I finally found some time to build some and here they are! You can find them from the AWS EC2 Management Console under Public AMI’s or via command line methods.
