Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • From application services to virtualizations. It is very stable, weekly updates, a well documented CLI easy to use.
  • Centos runs only the most stable version of codes and integrates it as well. The CLI works buttery smooth and is superfast.
  • Cons

  • But the system was only being used for a trial period, so when it becomes obsolete it won't disrupt my current administrating duties.
  • The problem with CentOS now is that its future is unknown. Red Hat has stated it won't be continuing this distribution - which is probably related to the acquisition of Red Hat by Big Blue (IBM).

  • Pros

  • The best of Debian are: very adapted for different hardware, customizable and safe.
  • It is as much user friendly on server as Ubuntu on desktop. Fast and has all software necessary.
  • Cons

  • The worst of Debian are: Buggy updates and more difficult to install than other distributions.
  • This type of customization requires some degree of knowledge which may look intimidating for new users.
