    I recommend debian. The stable branch is heavily tested so you can have piece of mind that the stuff will work. Upgrading is super easy (apt-get upgrade), and installing apps is easy too (apt-get install app).

    I would recommend Redhat Fedora. Redhat is a very popular flavor of linux for web hosting. My commercial webhost uses Redhat. Redhat has great support in the linux community.

    I'd recommend debian too. I have a redhat server and a debian-sarge server and I definately prefer debian. apt-get is just an awesome timesaver

    You can use apt on Redhat as well. I used to use apt on Redhat but Yum has gained in popularity and support to the point of becoming the standard on Redhat installations.

    Not on what we've got. Server's a few years old now though.

    I use Fedora and yum is a no-brainer. I can't imagine anything easier than typing "yum update" then "y".

    I too recommend Redhat. Again, my host uses Valhalla (version 7.3) and I have a box set up at home running Redhat Fedora Core.
