Not to be contrary, since I believe the majority of enterprise
operations are still Redhat centric, but I was surprised
by the number of admin pros at tonight's meeting noting a
strong preference for Ubuntu Server.  The leanings
mostly come out of the strengths of apt-get / dpkg
over yum / rpm and the reliability of update installations
that apt-get provides.

Agreement with the rest for sure.
