A toss-up between Debian and CentOS. The advantage of the first in Destkop installed on Ubuntu, so the barrier of entry for me will be obviously lower than in CentOS. The advantages of CentOS I consider that it is RedHat and it is well sold. And heard a lot about bug and security reports back, preserving the API.

What would you recommend, habropeople?

PS. As a serious commercial option stayed on Solaris, because mostly use products from Oracle. And this is not a topic for a holiwar'. :-)

A toss-up between Debian and CentOS.
By far the CentOS, the following arguments:
\r
The advantage of the first in Destkop installed on Ubuntu
On the desktop you can put a Fedora. At least there's confidence that "the way" RHEL/CentOS/Fedora do not disperse, because for all rh-based distros a community of developers. With Ubuntu and Debian, the situation is not so clear.
The advantages of CentOS I consider that it is RedHat
RH is used by many large enterprises. On the host, CentOS as well as other distributions. If you obtain a certificate of RH, will be an additional weighty argument in your summary (today certification RH — one of the most prestigious).
As a serious commercial option stopped on Solaris
Does Oracle has its own Oracle Linux distribution, which in fact, is RH-based, like CentOS. Ie in the near future we can expect that Solaris will be more similar to CentOS in order to have admins that use both Oracle Linux and Solaris was able to transition from one to the other without the need of retraining.

For three years, working in a consulting company, had to interact with a large number of customers, mostly quite large. Almost everywhere RHEL, once only seen Solaris, and once a mixture of FreeBSD/Linux and FreeBSD were going to get rid of.
\r
Again, if the cloud service providers to watch, all have RHEL and CentOS, but Debian does not occur very often.
\r
So I would choose CentOS in this context.

It all depends on what you are about to explore.
\r
If for yourself or for host — debian. I have about 40 virtuallock, only 5 of them are not on Debian. In small offices in Moscow are also taxis Ubuntu and Debian.
\r
Also Debian is suitable for studying Linux in a whole. It differs from the LFS is much smaller than CentOS.
\r
In deep production steers RKH.

Of Course, Debian! This is a great beginning, in all senses...
\r
Everything else is too specific, but to make objective insights and guidance you can, once you learn the basics in practice, that is not playing, and after working another year or two specific tasks.
