Can anyone provide any insight as to why newer Connect VAs are Debian based instead of CentOS based? I am migrating my Connect from a Lion server to a vSphere/ESXi 5 platform and will be virtualizing Connect in a Linux virtual machine. I typically use CentOS but I noticed Kerio has moved to Debian for VMWare VAs and I wonder if there was any performance or stability reason for the change.

I've never used an appliance, just install CentOS in a VM and then put Kerio on it. Done.

I understand how to install Kerio products. I'm curious as to why Kerio chose to change operating systems for its virtual appliance. Perhaps the reasons for the change may provide insight to me and others for selecting a Linux distribution for future platforms.

CentOS has too quick release cycle with a lot of changes. Debian is more stable and settled. Because Kerio Connect is usually the only application in the appliance, combination with Debian brings better stability for our customers and less risks when upgrading the system or application.
