Pros: Long running versions with fast updates

At work I switched everything to CentOS 6 a long time ago. This was the single best decision regarding operating-systemns for the company I can imagine.

It runs perfectly in VMWare, Hyper-V and XEN, it fully supports DELL, HP and custom servers and it has a great community with many excellent users.

We use this especially for high-load webservers with NginX+FastCGI as SSL-Terminators and DMZ-Hosts, as enterprise-proxy-servers with very high-load and for various other enterprise-services, like ntp, postfix as a smtp-queue-buffer with spamfilter, scp/sftp/ftp-server for deployment, websites with php and for a huge postgresql-cluster. Allover this Operating-System saved the company millions of Euros while parallely being better than Solaris, Unixware and others.
