With so many flavors, which one should I taste?

I have been looking into upgrading our work servers and would like to try linux on for size. I have used linux exclusively for maybe 5 years before going to windows for servers. My needs are as followed:

Have from 10 to 20 employees
5 - 10 of which only use remote web workplace (they work from home)
I have to have this funtionality or something similar

need to host a program I created with VS2010 .net 4.0 and run locally or remotely
I could redesign it for use on linux if everything else works.

I have read some forums for what flavor to use with no luck. Everyone says different ones. I am currently downloading FreeBSD and CentOS and am going to take a look and see which one I like better.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi jjd1241,

As you said that you have got 5 years of working experience on linux then it shouldn't be tough for you to make a choice. Your choice should be based on your previous experience with linux. Not in the case if you want to taste something different :-)

CentOS is pretty good and stable OS and has got a good community support. I personaly like CentOS. Never tried FreeBSD so can't comment on that.
