Seriously, though, RH/SuSE have Bugzilla, too (and they work) and I would imagine that the only thing you mentioned above that RH and SuSE lack is the social contract. The development process is the same (just faster), RH has more software available than Debian and stable is __too__ slow IMO. Plus, you can't just pull what you want from testing, b/c that will almost invariably pull stuff that you do not want, as well (think libc dependency). And, finally, if you do decide to grab from testing, forget about security updates for those pieces of software (at least, from Debian itself).
In any case, my preferred distro is Gentoo. Its just that RH gets a bit of a bad rap from the tech cognoscenti and IMO its a little undeserved.
i won't argue that it isn't more complicated, but it makes for a more
in the us, you can find more people who use redhat because redhat does a great job of marketing as well as providing a viable commercial product which fits in well with a corporate ethos (the "user friendly" installer is helpful too). they actively engage proprietary vendors to "certify" software for their platform, and provide "support".
Yeah, those are good points and emminently true. I was just saying you could find more people, not why.
i highly recommend postfix. better security record than sendmail, and much easier to configure too. so, we seem to agree on at least something :)
