    This distro has 5 DVDs!!! Imagine what are all the software offered. I just tried the single DVD version delivered along with PCQuest sometimes back. It is my habit of trying every distro of linux whenever a new release available. As usual Debian is one of the distros which is always shipping stable release of each OSS. They don't include any pre-release material.

    But as far as ease of use among fullfledged distros is concerned it is Mandriva for newbie as well as experts.

    Debian has synaptic package management. You have to use apt-get in it.

    Centos is rpm based you have to use yum or rpm command in it.

    Centos is a clone of Red Hat Entreprise Linux and Debain is not derive from others.

    Debian and Centos both are good for web servers as they both are quite stable but Centos is better in terms of performance I think. Also debian is used as desktop while Centos is mainly used for servers.
