Favorite Distro for Server Users - 2010
This poll/thread is meant to help those users that are having difficulty which distribution(s) they should start with when looking for a good Linux server distribution.
Please use it to post information about your favorite server oriented distro. Do not post any comments saying that any particular distro is the best, because the best truly is very subjective.
Note that this thread will be locked and/or deleted at the end of the year and a new thread started. The poll from last year can be found here.

I have an old laptop that I use to share some files on the LAN, with transmission-cli and web interface primarily for downloading distros, and a music server, if you will, using MPD.
Tried it with Debian for a while, but had no end of troubles. (Daily kernel panics. No idea why.) Now I run it with Arch, trouble free.

I go for Debian, as its developers have found a proper balance between stability and flexibility.

I voted Redhat/CentOS, if I had a mission critical server, I'd probably go with Redhat/CentOS.

For a server I want reliability, stability, and long maintenance life. The only one on that list that meets those criteria is RHEL/CentOS. Though ubuntu LTS releases are nearly as good.

I voted Debian as I have used it for years. However, at work they wanted something RPM based because the powers that be never heard of Debian and only knew Red hat. But because of costs we run Centos.

Debian is stable, reliable, and proven. Works for me.

maybe not a fair vote but only ever used Fedora for ISCSI along with ESX.
Works very well.
