    My 2 cents is to pick debian over CentOS. It's opinion-driven, but I find the "apt" system of debian preferable to the "yum" system of CentOS.

    There are others reasons, but the one listed above is the primary one...but here they are:

    Debians "apt" facilitates you automatically removing unused dependency packages once their dependant is no longer installed.

    Debian does not use the "system-config-<category>" bundle of scripts that redhat developed.

    Debian does not use the nonstandard /etc/sysconfig

    It goes on and on...but like I said it's just opinion, those reasons I listed not to choose CentOS, may be the very reason you feel comfortable with it.
