I wish I could vote for CentOS as well but voted for Debian why because it's the best.

I love Debian but prefer RHEL/CentOS as a server distro. Debian is a great general purpose distro, but Red Hat is designed as a server platform. So many of the defaults are set up for server use that it just makes life easier. The fact that Debian comes with an open firewall is just one example.

Still Slackware for me, as the year before. It works and hasn't let me down a single time.

I think between Slackware and Debian , but voted for Slackware maybe because I've started using GNU/Linux from Slack.
But it would be nice for Slackware to have some more packages in the official repository.

Debian is better/simpler when you have lots of servers, to my mind. Or when you need some more specific software which is available from the official repository.

RHEL is the best to work with.


CentOS, Scientific Linux, Oracle Linux are different faces of it.


Will try slackware.

Thumbs up CentOS

CentOS since it is free and also have same features which RHEL has. It can address Enterprise level requirement, like High Availability Cluster, Storage filesystem, Virtualization etc.. After RHEL I prefer CentOS.

Yeah, but it is open source, there's a FreeBSD section on here, and it is fscking awesome on server.

I too would have voted that way had the option been there.
