The only issue I'd have with Debian is the installation is generally a bit
more hassle and kernel rebuilds are required , typically RH installs direct
from CD with good support for most off the shelf servers (currently
poweredge 1750's). I have never used Debian but I've good things about apt
but what about the stability of packages released to apt servers, would they
be as reliably tested as RH errata used on an up2date server ?
