I maybe completely wrong though haha. Thanks a lot for the info, helped a lot. +Rep
more or less. try out a few distro's, dedicate about a month or two to each to get a complete feel for them.

I still use ubuntu, and i think experienced users are a bit hard on it yeah its more geared to the "noob" user, but its still got all the power you'd expect for linux still in it. dunno, i like it for my desktop

i quite like debian i use a customized debian set up called crunchbang thats pretty nice on my desktop and does what i need in VM's, debian is really nice and slick for both new and experienced users also a lot of people swear by arch linux for desktops and its got some really nice stuff going for it however its not really marketed for its stability there is also fedora which a lot of people really like thats good to learn/use if you are planning on going for redhat stuff at any point in time because they basically use the same base

as far as a server goes, centos is probably the "best" distro for a server you can get without dropping cash on redhat because centos is the closest to what you would see on a high dollar linux server in a business and its rock solid... but debian servers are also really good and a few people really like using slackware you can even run an ubuntu server if you REALLY want to but youll get the occasional person calling you a noob

linux is linux really, if you really spend the time setting up a server, a centos server wont differ in functionality or security from a debian or slackware server... some people will tell you bsd is more secure (but they are smokin somethin cause its pretty much the exact same )
Kinda meh now...
