ugh, why would you do that to yourself? fedora is beta and ressembles alpha way too much !
I use RHEL5 at work (on my workstation most servers are RHEL3/4) and centOS5/debian/ubuntu at home. (centOS on server, debian on miniITX media pc and ubuntu on desktop)
It works well. Yum sucks compared to Apt thats for sure. At the start of the thread there was that no root on ubuntu rubbish, its not hard, type "sudo passwd" and thats it. If it doesnt work, then create the user root (or another if that user is allready taken) and give it the UID of 0 and bam he is root as soon as he logs in. here are a million way of letting people have a root account on ubuntu. I too think its stupid to only let people use sudo. In fact i'm not even on the sudoer's on my rhel5 workstation...
Ubuntu is definately not a server distro though first off its too unstable, it is based off debian unstable, but i cant really see people using debian as a server either, its just plain annoying, also i find running a debian server on unstable to be just silly, but running it on stable makes all the packages seem real dated.
