Ubuntu is not a better distro, but...

A CentOS and Ubuntu comparison is not fair. CentOS mirrors Red Hat's enterprise linux, and therefore is more stable and also not as up to date.
I have found once an Ubuntu distro has been out a couple of months, the level of Python is so close to the latest, or at least new enough to work with packages like MySQLdb and Django, that I don't need to install the latest Python. Despite having said this, I tend to install the latest Python and packages in /usr/local just to have the latest Python.
