By no means conclusive I've found that the two distributions in companies are:

RedHat for companies that want support SLAs etc and all the things that come with "paid for" vendor support.
CentOS for companies that want the stability of RedHat but don't mind using Google/Forums for their main support (or have in-house staff).

This is the reason I asked to start with the basic and use correct terminology.

The word is distribution and not server.

First of all focus on commands as whatever distribution you find fedora/centoOs/RHEL, I don't think there is much change in the command line used in all these 3 distros.

Yes using ubuntu is a bit different as compared to RHEL and CentOs. And I think you have got enough information to start with in our earlier posts.
