The most common is Ubuntu, they have a great support community and updates come out frequently.  It is my favorite.

It depends on your choise. Generally I have seen Redhat and SUSE in production. But you have to pay for these.

If you want to have a free Redhat like open source solution, then ou can go with Cent-OS, most web hosting co. use this.

You can go with ubuntu as well and lost of docs available to configure different services on ubuntu.

Most companies run either paid versions of RedHat or Suse for a large enough server base. CentOS is essentially Redhat without the paid support, same development trees etc. Debian is also very popular from a security / stability point of view. I have not encountered too many shops running ubuntu.

Fedora is a free community based version of Red-Rat.  It will work as well, and major updates are released frequently

I would say redhat or ubuntu as server and desktop solutions. For Web solutions the most common is centos.

we are talking about desktops , also what is good for servers ?

KCarney81Commented:
To answer your original question, I recommend Ubuntu with gnome for desktops due to ease of use.  Newer versions have a software management application for simple installation/removal of software.

what will be difference between using Centos and Redhat for servers?
0
 
KCarney81Commented:
Redhat is not free and you will have tech support directly from Redhat instead of researching solutions yourself.  You would need to do that if you went with Centos, Fedora or Ubuntu (there is a paid support line for this as well)

Diogo UchoasCommented:
The only difference between CentOS and RedHat is the support, The source code is basicly the same. For servers deffinitely prefer CentOS or Debian because of the large knowledge base already available on the web and for desktop choose whatever pleases you the most, I use Fedora.
