In my experience, the support from Mandrake is not really comparable to
that of rhat/suse. I don't want to pick on them, they do a good job
and everything but the only time I have worked on Mandrake server
products, it was obvious that the testing that had gone into the product
was orders of magnitude better with rhat/suse.
Don't dismiss Debian completely though. If you can find a good third
party support contract it's very well suited in a commercial environment
even in larger companies. The lifetime of the an ordinary Debian stable
has so far been in the order of, or even surpassed, rhat/suse server.
