Unofficial Business branch of Linux?
« on: March 08, 2014, 01:15:35 AM »
I'm a recent college grad looking for work with my Associates Degree.  As I talk to people and network, the feedback I'm getting is that most businesses are running Red Hat.  Up until now, I've mostly been studying Debian based systems and a little bit of Arch. 

Basically, I'm wondering if I should switch over and start studying Fedora or maybe CentOS?

Fedora is hard since you're constantly reinstalling your system, and CentOS is hard because Redhat itself uses very old packages. There's really no medium.

If I had to choose a RPM based distro, I think OpenSuSE Tumbleweed is the way to go since it's rolling release.

I would agree... RedHat does use older packages but it is designed to be extremely stable, much like the Stable Debian branch.

Red Hat is where I began my Linux journey. And yes it can be a pain sometimes but like stated above runs rock solid. I may also add that their package base is smaller than the others are. For a server setup I would recommend and RPM based distro.
