Debian imo, although CentOS has made some real strides between 4->5.

In a large scale virtualised environment I'm (OK, OK, I'm a heathen!)
actually quite fond of RHEL in conjunction with Satellite server.

CentOS for me. With small deployment we can not afford to license RHEL.

gentoo or LFS, but i'll vote for gentoo since i never really got to make lfs. i really like gentoo, in case you need hardcore server, you'd better waste your time on this system or LFS, but in case you need it fast, it could as well be debian.

I love running debian here at work as a virtual machine. It serves as the web host we use for intranet usage. Fast and easy to use. I'm not using x, so looks don't matter to me, and I really appreciate the ease of updating with apt.

Sl-Sl-Sl-Slackware! Running 3 servers with it now. No crashes, just stable pure joy.

I run CentOS (ClarkConnect) at home. Work in a strictly M$ Government environment, so CentOS gets my vote if only for the succesful fork. Will be intersting to see if the name/management change to Clear Net (or whatever) manages to push Clark Connect into the survey. It is a wonderfully simple Linux Server/Gateway to configure and use.

Slackware. Rock solid ]:->
I also respect Debian for its stability, but as I'm a Slackware-fan for several years already, I've pointed my mouse to the "Slackware" variant.

Peace to all! :-)
