I've never used SUSE at all. I'm downloading the image right now so I can install a VM and check it out.

I have found I've gotten used to where everything is and how it's done on debian based distros, I have a hard time going over to others. Even things like starting services is different anymore. But I'm probably going to stick with my complacency as it works for now.

I always did like gentoo as well.

A Gentoo-like distro that shows promise is Arch. I almost switched my server to Arch from Gentoo, but realized it didn't have enough stuff in the package manager. I prefer to use a package manager since I run a free webhost in my spare time, so anything I can do to reduce my admin time is a major plus.

Being an RHCE and managing Red Hat servers for over a decade, I stick with "the conservative" distro. Played with xubuntu for a couple months but went back to Fedora on my workstations.

If RedHat is the "conservative" distro, does that make Debian the "stick in the mud" distro?
