Wink Red Hat Vs Debian

Thanks for all the replies. I just love Debian cos I can install it as a server, workstation and desktop. At work I use Debian cos it has all the major software I need for my work to be done. I really use a distro which can be gotten from the internet without an problem. Debian rocks the linux work. It runs on more plateforms than any other. I can play my mp3 without any problem. On Red Hat/Fedora you have to download the mp3 codecs from somewhere and the problem comes in when you do not have any internet connectivity and that applies for Ubuntu also and major rpm based distros.

Fedora is great for desktop, but I'd go Slackware for sure.
