Linux distro for servers farm


I consider replacing our RHE3, what would be a good alternative ? i am thinking about centos 4.3
Is there a site that collects information about what is the most common distro beeing used in servers farms ?

Hiya Danny!

Welcome to LQ!

That answer would, of course, unequivocally, have to be ...

Slackware Linux

Equally unequivocally, Debian Sarge .

Actually, since both Slack & CentOS are not commercial, they are also good choices.

I would go CentOS if you had Red Hat.
