    Without a doubt, CentOS (that is the basis of the distribution ;) )

    Any bugs in CentOS compared to others? Especially with using cPanel?

    Go on, have a guess
    I'd go with CentOS too. No known bugs AFAIK. I use it in my development environment for support RHE servers.

    Whitebox also seems stable.

    And if your a RH Network Subscriber when you renew they are offering it at half price.

    Not for sure if they are gonna make that public knowledge or not but I spent a hr on the phone with them this morning and they agreed to offer existing customers the same special as when we signed up.

    I do not know about Debian or BSD because I have never used them with cPanel. We ran into several bugs testing Fedora Core 1 and similar results were posted to this forum. We have not looked at Core 2 (we gave up on testing Fedora after testing CentOS). The situation may be improved, but I seem to remember bug reports being listed about that release as well.

    As far as releases being compatible with RHES however, CentOS is the only distribution of the ones you mentioned that concerns itself with compatibility.
