Thank you for your input Mark.  I am looking into Ubuntu, and have seen very similar feedback to yours out there.

I used CentOS for several years before switching to Ubuntu. I now use
Ubuntu exclusively on servers I manage.

I would say Debian/Ubuntu is definitely not the most similar distro to
CentOS/RHEL (maybe Fedora is, but I don't know), and when I used CentOS,
I was not a fan of 'the Debian way', but I not only got used to it; I
like it.
