    So I see an ever increasing use of Linux in the work place and wondered what people are using.

    I like Mint, it's the prettiest I think, but I feel Ubuntu is the best for a *nix amateur like myself

    I started out with Ubuntu a couple of years ago and liked it but I am seeing much more CentOS around the enterprise than I am Ubuntu.

    Interesting, I know places where Windows is on the decline for various reasons.

    Be interesting to see what kinds of company opt for it. We have a mix of public and private and I don't know any that use it extensively. I know the odd account has a few servers but nothing like Windows. Could just be the kind of work my employer bids for maybe. It's a shame as I would happily get involved

    CentOS is the free version of Redhat, people tend to favour it for Linux servers.

    Ubuntu tends to get chosen as a desktop replacement.

    CentOS for servers and it's what I'm used to so for desktop I use Fedora. Mint and Ubuntu are probably a bit more polished as a desktop distro

    I like CentOS, it's my new go to Linux OS, Ubuntu was nice and easy but CentOS is basically RedHat as Dave said, if you know that, you know RHEL.
