Do you like Redhat? I could never get into it -- the way everything is organized in the file system has always really bugged me.

Do you like CentOS. Have a few servers at work that use it but it drives me up a wall.

So far, yes.

So far I have one physical server running it, mostly just a file server.  And one VM with a few dev tools that I use for about 25% of my programming work.

What is it that drives you up the wall with CentOS?

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that my droplet on DigitalOcean is Ubuntu Server. :D

I tried CentOS, but again the familiarity pulled me back.

I'm ambivalent I suppose, as an end-user.  The systems folks manage everything so I can't speak to that end of it.  Mainly I love the vim + terminal workflow and tiling window managers, which will work on any distro.

One example of my annoyence with CentOS is how they handle the network interfaces. I really like the /etc/network/interfaces file in Ubuntu. Everything in one place. In CentOS you have to go into that net-cfg folder, I think, something like that (network-scripts maybe?) and edit the different IPs, netmasks, etc for the interfaces. You then have to go to a seperate file and edit the gateway, broadcast. Like, I just dont understand why they did that, why not consolidate it all in one file? Its things like that that irritate me about CentOS. Just like, the whole file layout/hierarchy.

Been meaning to try funtoo, whats the longest you've had an install for?

I only just jumped on the linux bandwagon, so I've been using it for about 4 months. Haven't really run into any problems. It's definitely worth a try, but if you don't have the time/patience to compile everything, then it's a horrible choice.

What distro are you using that you have to compile everything? Most linux distro have better package managers than "modern" OSes.
