I've been using FreeBSD since 2.2.1 and I implement and support FreeBSD 
whenever I can.  That said, many companies already have a *nix 
infrastructure and one must use what one is given.  I find Red Hat is 
the most common linux distribution out there.  CentOS is often used by 
these same companies for dev and test environments.

Occasionally end-users will ask me to recommend a version of linux to 
play with and I point them to Ubuntu.
