Greetings Javier:

We run Debian Linux on our Dell Servers here.  I have the following
server equipment:

PowerEdge 350, 650, 750, 1550, 1750, 1850, 2550
PowerVault 120T, 220S

While Dell doesn't officially support the OS, I have not had any
problems with Debian running on the systems.  Debian recognizes the
hardware, including the PERC RAID controllers.  Dell has always been
responsive when we call needing hardware replaced.

As far as if you should change, I can't say.  We like Debian because of
the long development cycles - we don't have to upgrade the servers very
often.  We also like that low cost.

If you have any specific questions that you would like answered, please
feel free to ask.
