    I can't comment on *BSD, but between Fedora and CentOS, go CentOS. It's much more stable as it's a clone of Red Hat Enterprise, as opposed to Fedora which is made more for development stuff, and not as stable.

    Indeed. A search of the forums will reflect the same advice from previous questions of the same ilk.

    I believe that most compatible with cPanel is CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise. FreeBSD is good but look like a less prioriy for cPanel. All scripts will works for CenTOS and FreeBSD later.

    I haven't seen any particular issues with any of the RHE releases and its derivatives. As an Enterprise OS it seems to do its job well - i.e. stable and relatively secure.
