We use Debian on all our servers and think it's the best server linux
distribution available.

The only reason I might see for sticking with RedHat, are the
OpenManage tools. Maybe you can get them to work with Suse, but after
2 days of trying to get them to work with Debian, I can only say to
Dell seems to have done their best to make them incompatible with ANY
other distribution out there. I know that's probably not the case, but
it sure seems so!
