around the longest - more folk have used it and also used on the
commercial side. Other distros have been focused on home PC. That is
where Ubuntu have stepped in and are slowly catching up in the
commercial market. [I read a comparison a while ago on servers and
Redhat did particularly badly considering it's paid for and Suse
didn't do much better].
Most folk see rpm having the big drawback of updating time and
dependency hell. Having been a deb user i find rpm difficult to get
used to and it's fair to say rpm folk would find the change to deb
difficult. The best distro in terms of eye-candy imo is PCLOS - but
crucial point with a distro is what's under the bonnet.
- If you want hobby, go with Ubunto or Fedora
If you want employability go with RedHat...
Fedora has some great software packages, but RedHat many of the updates
require a subscription for the OS and are focused on the Commerical server.
