RHEL 5 or Debian 5 For Server?
I know there are older threads/topics on similar issues, but I couldn't find anything that wasn't somewhat dated so I wanted to get some input from the community here.
I am looking to start spinning up and managing quite a few Linux servers on my own. I don't have enough past experience in the field to know all the specific differences between the distros. I have been mainly using the new version of Debian and I really like it thus far, but my hosting provider now offers RHEL 5 as an option and I didn't know if this would be better to learn/know for any specific reason.
If anyone could give me some feedback I'd really appreciate it. I just want to mainly stick to one distro and learn it really well instead of bouncing between them all. Thanks!

Red Hat has been a well proven and great server distribution for a very long time, but the package management tools are better in Debian, at least in my opinion.
Best of luck with your new servers.oz
