[App_rpt] distro preference?

Justy curious, why Fedora or Centos?  Is this just what you're most familiar
with or do these (redhat derived) distros do something "better" than other
distros that makes running */app_rpt easier to install, configure, and
admin?  I will be putting this node in a completly mobile setting so I will
need to get the box up and running with a existing distro and get networking
functional via usb serial first (it's enough bandwith...I've connected to
allstar link over iax on this interface before.)
