Hi you all guys,

I have a 12 dual nodes beowulf running on Red Hat Linux 8.0, but you 
know, I have the update problem since I do not want to pay the update 
service to Red Hat, so my question is, Does someone have experience 
about clusters running on both Debian and RedHat distributions, who can 
help me to decide  on this issue?
