    I've had awesome experience with FreeBSD in terms of performance and etc for vBulletin. FreeBSD is more complex in terms of administration - you should be a unix pro to really take advantage of it (IMHO)

    I like CentOS because it also has great performance, its kept up-to-date and its newbie friendly - you can YUM install almost everything!

      hi,

      freeBSD is not "newbie friendly" you should be quite a "heavy" experienced user with Linux i'd go for CentOS the only disadvantage CentOS has (in my opinion) they are slow in releasing new software and or updates they however will patch any discoverd security hole but they will not update the version number of the affected package so things like rkhunter (and similar) will show warnings which actually can be ignored and this is verry annoying and confusing when is it safe to ignore a warning and when is action requierd ?

          Its not so much CentOS is slow, its that RHE only certifies specific builds as "stable". Since CentOS is RHE without the branding or support, you're locked into RHE's version numbering.
