       This is just my 2 cents worth. The reason I run Cent OS is
because it just seems to be rock solid stable. That's something I
haven't seen in any of the other distros, or MS Windows.
       My computers are my lifeline to my jobs. I get my assignments by
way of my computer, and I report my completed assignments on my
computer. It's bad enough to have to deal with hardware failures from
time to time, so the last thing I want to deal with on top of that is  a
finicky OS or software. 
       I run Cent OS on both of my laptops, and all three of my
desktops, and I can power any one of those machines up, and so far Cent
OS has never failed me. Cent OS just works. That's what matters to me.

       Just my 2 cents

       Jim
