sure.  my organization is using centos wherever possible.  we have some 
history with RH-like distros, and a large installed base of HP's XC, 
which is RHEL-based.  what do you ask from a distro?  I want it to be 
reasonably up-to-date, use a decent package system (like yum+rpm),
not get in the way of NFS-root, etc.
