Hindsight its always better than foresight - I am a field hockey goalie and I can asure you I KNOW this!!

I used to be on RH6, then Redhat moved to licensing. So I went to Fedora - but I got sick and tired of all these packages and daemons running that I did need for a "WHATEVER" server (many different).

The amoount of stuff you cannot turn off while running Fedora is huge. CentOS is lean, so I swapped.
CentOS does have advantages when you run it on Dell Blade servers.
