    CentOS is the COMMUNITY enterprise operating system. If you want it to work with Zimbra, then at least take a moment to understand the issue and file a bug in CentOS's community bugzilla. AFAIK, no one has done that yet.

    I think jholder's announcement was poorly worded, but the advice is good. Ubuntu has a larger and more active community than CentOS. The Ubuntu port came from community members who demonstrated interest by committing work. If CentOS is to be seen as a viable community distribution, not just an imperfect RHEL knockoff, then you need to demonstrate that.

    There was a time that Ubuntu was an imperfect Debian knockoff. The user community made it what it is today. Zimbra is not going to lead the CentOS community; they have other distros to support.

    Given that the circumstances have changed (ie bug filed) i've updated the announcement.

    Personally, I would be happy with official support for any flavor or distribution of Linux that allows me to utilize the advanced features of ZCS Network Edition on a robust 64-bit platform, without of course, paying RedHat or SuSE for the privilege.

    It just happens that CentOS fits the bill and has worked well for me (and based on forum posts, it would appear many others as well).

    I can't speak to any CentOS bugs, as I haven't experienced any - but if I do run into one, I'll file on their bugzilla too.

    As far as I know nothing in Centos 4.x is broken, its Centos 5 they seem to be having a drama with.

    I would never recommend someone run Ubuntu as a production server, good desktop distro hence its popularity, my desktop is kubuntu for example. But all my servers are centos or solaris.

    It has come to our attention that CentOS has incompatibilities with RHEL4
    in relation to some of its perl modules, which are required in ZCS 5.0.

    The only testing we've done is enough to verify that this is the case.

    Can you confirm this is CentOS 5 you are referring to and not 4?

    We aren't 100% sure on the editions. We just did a quick once over of the perl libs to check.

    For example, on 4.5 it worked great. On 4.6, it borked.
