Hey Tom,

Tom, too many brands for just 2 years. I’ve working since 1993 and I have to agree with Mandriva.

Anyway it depends where you live or your preferences, here from Spain I’ve preferred some created in France more than other from other places.

Your source must be similar to the autor.

I used Centos 5 for business and for web servers and Mandriva for home.
