I love using Ubuntu, and just apt-get install tasksel, and let tasksel configure my server environment.
But now that I'm the IT guy for an enterprise company, we need something STABLE and proven, so, CentOS.
I can't use yum to install ANYTHING, unless I can select versions of software. So, I'm learning how to build my own AMP stack, and will likely host the repo myself.
TLDR - Going to wget .rpms!
