It depends what do you intend to do with it. If you want to use it for a server then it's best to use CentOS. For desktop Fedora is better

RMI

Fedora has better repos, and you can install stuff easier. However, it's easier to break because of that. But overall, Fedora is better if you don't make radical changes to it.

You guys really think Fedora is better for Red Hat certification, or did you not read the question?

Hi,

have you heard of Scientific Linux (SL), it's RH based, good for a server and Fedora for workstation..

Cheers

As far as I know CentOS is RHEL except without the name, icons, or support/maintenance, so I'd think that'd be exactly what you're looking for to study for RHCE. Fedora is RHEL except with newer (read 'less stable') elements that may or may not get rolled into RHEL. Mint is based on Debian rather than RedHat, so that will be a lot less useful studying for RHCE.

It is essentially irrelevant what would be good to run on a workstation; what is needed in a study for a cert, is something that is as close to exactly the same as the OS on which you are trying to get certified and while Fedora may be more like RH than, say Debian, Centos would be almost identical (as, up to a point, would be Scientific).

You could argue that, say, Bodhi was nice to run on a workstation, but it would be a useless argument because it is just not what you want in this particular situation. Enlightenment, however much you like it or dislike it, is a distraction, and, from the blinkered point-of-view of the certification, the networking is just all fu.

Why would you want an approximate copy, if you could have a near-as exact one? The answer is that you wouldn't, so it has got to be either RH itself or one of the 'exact-copies' (and RH itself is expensive, except for the evaluation versions); no other options needed.
