I'll be using Mageia as my server, but I guess there is no way to vote for it?

I am using Nethserver which is a GUI for for CentOS. The common setup is done via the GUI and if I need other settings I can handle it via command line.

RHEL. We have a lot of issue with SUSE, including their $h1tty support model.
