Hi people,

I've been wrestling with this question for a while now, and although
product suggestion is probably going to be skewed here, I'm really
interested in what you have to say.

I need to choose a server operating system to run LAMP intranet web
services with little maintenance and at high reliability. This system
will be installed in multiple locations, so the last thing I want to
be doing is a shed load of ongoing administration, or dealing with
unnecessary problems.

I've pretty much narrowed the selection down to CentOS 5 and Ubuntu Hardy LTS.

If anyone has any suggestions, pros or cons for either systems I'd
love to hear them.
