Best Linux Distro for Systems Administrators

What is the best Linux Distro?

One of the most important things to consider when picking a Linux distribution is where will it be used. So whether you are just starting out as a sys admin or a seasoned pro you need to pick the right distro. If you are a student I would suggest Ubuntu because it gives a polished Windows like desktop environment. If you are entering the job market or currently working for a company, find out what Linux distro the admins, engineers and developers use at your location. If you are in between school and work, then I would suggest CentOS which is the community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Suse Linux Enterprise Server the public version of OpenSuse backed by Novell.
