RHEL is what I like for business, I recommend it to customers and I work with it every day. I think It's the most business friendly linux out there (and IMHO the only "sane" Linux distro on par with commercial Unix offerings).
For personal use, I prefer FreeBSD or Mac OS X. Linux is a PITA, I only use it when somebody pays me for doing that! xD
Same here. I run all my servers on RHEL or CentOS.
Rock solid, does what it says on the tin.
Eacy to install all sorts of software that my customer us in real life especially IBM WebSphere(MQ, WAS and Message Broker etc)
But anything with a LSB / directory structure will do me fine.
I use Fedora on desktops but Gnome 3 is a total disaster (so far)a nd I consider it to be in the same class as Unity or even Metro as a WFT class of interface. I'm waiting for the next fedora with Gnome 3.5 to see if it is anymore usable.
But with the 10yr life of RHEL/CentOS, it might be a long time before I have to move away from Gnome 2
Nailed it. I think the article should have broken up most popular desktop from most popular server. People do use ubuntu server, but not nearly as much as RHEL/CENTOS/Scientific.
I'm sure this might just start a flame war within a flame war, but RPM is in another class when compared to apt. I'd trust apt for desktops, but not servers.
Not this old chestnut again.
Yes many years ago I like many used to suffer from 'RPM Hell'.
In recent years, I hardly ever use 'rpm' directly. Yum and Packagekit makes 'RPM Hell' a thing of the past IMHO.
Also, many package producers have got their act sorted out so that wierd dependencies are included in the package they are supplying.
Sadly, Oracle RDBMS still needs some wierd rpm's to install correctly but this is down to Oracle being a PITA when it comes to any Linux apart from their own.
Linux is a PITA compared to FreeBSD ? Are you sure about that ?
I have had to maintain both in server environments, I would never use FreeBSD as my desktop OS, FreeBSD without the GNU utilities is just balls, same with Sun Solaris as it goes, nothing beats BASH that is just my personal opinion and imo it is:
