It's a political thing mostly.  We do a lot of work for two multi-national 
Linux vendors and so have pretty open access to licenses and support.  So the 
decision was made to standardise on a single *nix, considering we're using 
CentOS for testing and evaluation...I'm sure you can fill in the blanks ;)

Personally I prefer the whole SysV thing (al la Linux/Solaris/etc) and binary 
packaging systems (compiling everything from source is a pain IMHO).  I can 
manage fBSD, but I've never really "liked" it.  But that's totally subjective 
- I'm not trying to start a holy war.
