  • Debian Based
    Almost all Debian distributions are based upon one of two root distributions, either Debian based or Redhat based. Debian distros have about four times more software ported to them. The apt system and synaptic package manager are very user friendly.

  • Redhat Based
    Redhat is one of the earliest distributions. It is often a choice in server environments because it's been around so long. We have migrated our services away from Redhat and Centos and towards Ubuntu which is a Debian derived distribution. A big disadvantage to Redhat has been no provision for major release in place upgrades.
