Well, I fled servers from CentOS to FreeBSD almost a decade ago. And actually not From CentOS per se, but from Linux. One of the reasons was: every 45 days on average: glibc or kernel update —> reboot. One of my friends started using word “Lindoze”. Linux is perfect for number crunchers and workstations. FreeBSD is waaay better for servers. In my book that is.

Just straightening small nuance.
