Re: Why did you chose Debian over CentOS?
Because I am a masochist.
Just kidding. I inherited an infrastructure as part of my latest job in
operations. I can tell you that from a SysAdmin/Ops Engineer point of
view, Debian and its derivatives are not as quick to get to a nice
automated infrastructure and require a lot of up-front glue to get
things going the way you want. I am not talking just web however. Once
they do work though, it's pretty flawless. And I do agree about the ease
of dist-> new dist in-place upgrades. I just find that my most common
tasks are simply easier on RHEL/CentOS.
And to the people who give a schpiel about what if RH shuts down
tomorrow, not going to happen. Someone will buy RH before they get shut
down. They are the single biggest kernel committers and their workforce
is filled with some of the most talented engineers in the open source world.
