Which RedHat-based Linux distribution do you like the most? Which is your favorite?

Please do not reply with 'I like Debian/Gentoo/etc.'. That's not a point of this poll. Thanks.

The advantage of CentOS is not that it is technically any better than the others but it has 5 year support cycles, which is unusual in a free version of Linux. For those of us who don't want to upgrade our servers too often this is a big plus point.

there you have a very good point indeed
i had already requested a support ticket for centos
i now use opensuse in vmware server but i'm looking to migrate to a physical as the vmware installation was supposed to be just for testing, but i didn't find the time yet to migrate Sad

on the other hand, as RH EL and CentOS are practically the same (apart from the artwork), it could be good to have support for both, but i prefer CentOS

Yes, although I have a prefence to a different non-redhat distro for most of our stuff. When we have to go with a "redhat-like" distro I like CentOS because of the large support cycle, and it's a set time period. Most free distros are support "for a while" which could be a couple years or could be 7 years. So yeah, it would be nice if CentOS was officially supported, although I know a lot of people on the forums have mentioned running the current version on CentOS without any issues, ourselves included.

Debian ? ==>[] Smile

Debian is one of the most stable OS after *BSD, it will be a good thing that Kerio support it.

I've recently started switching many of my *nix boxes to CentOS. I get tired of updating the Mandriva boxes every year. Completely rebuilding the boxes to upgrade gets old. The mirrors quit patching the older versions quickly after a new release.

Trustix was a nice server OS. To bad they discontinued it.
