Hot topic for a flame war:
Who has better default mail tools for easy shell scripting, Ubuntu or Red Hat ?

Spoiler: We like Ubuntu. Try working w/ RedHat documentation, then come back if you have any questions on why we shy from RedHat.
Ubuntu 20.x LTS has basic security until spring 2025, this is a nice long runway. Ubuntu has been rock solid, no need to fix what's not broken.

See the community reaction to recent RedHat / CentOS product changes.
