Question Debian vs. Red Hat?

I had a problem with RedHat 7.1 that I think can only be fixed by wiping out the system and reinstalling... see thread Kernel Panic: Aiee.

My sys Admin here at work said that Debian has a more reliable operating system than RedHat. The down side is that it doesn't carry all the same bells and whistles that RedHat does. What is the feel out there for Debian vs. RedHat.

I really liked my RedHat 7.1 minus this last kernel fart.

If you want an easy time then try Mandrake. But if you want to really try a good Linix box go for SuSE. Just my Opinion.

i think debian and redhat both have their similarities and differences, ups and downs.. but i would say, yes, i would say either debian or slackware are the best in my own opinion, they are the most robust linux distros out there.

take away the bells and whistles, and Red Hat is just as stable as anything out there. You trade ease of use for stability. Mandrake and Red Hat are about the only ones that give you the choice.
