Since no one else has suggested it, I'll note that we run Debian on most
of our backend machines here, and have been quite happy with it. It's
generally stable, and as long as you don't mind the slowish release
cycle, has just about any GPL'd software you might want installable
RHEL is just starting to catch up, with yum, to where Debian has been
for well over 10 years.
