I was a Red Hat user for many years back in the 90's, and one day I woke
up and felt like they'd become too corporate. They were all
about "enterprise this" and "support contract that" and the easygoing
leading-edge stuff was gone. Even today, I work with some companies
who use RHEL and tell me they can't upgrade to, say, PHP 5 because
it's "too bleeding edge" and the repositories don't support that kind
of craziness and whatever. (I realize this isn't entirely true, but
that's the perception these guys get and I think RHEL pushes
that "stability and security" thing enough that people feel like they
can't run recent packages as a result.)
I've experimented with several distros, including Gentoo and even a
roll-your-own that I built myself based on Linux from Scratch, but for
the last few years I've been a happy Kubuntu user. They're bleeding
edge and have an element of fun about them.
