I'm building a server that I want to run OpenVZ on (for my private use as a test environment; I'm not going to be hosting other people on this).

Is there a compelling reason to pick Debian or CentOS from an OpenVZ perspective? I'm comfortable using both, but being new to OpenVZ I'm not sure if one has a feature lag or not.

I'm not trying to spark a distro war-- if it doesn't matter, please just say so without disparaging one or the other; they've both got their place.

afaik a few features like cpulimits/cpus/cpuunits do not work in the kernels marked as unstable (eg. all precompiled debian kernels out there).

the stable RHEL 2.6.18.* kernels on the other hand may not support a feature from one of the recent kernel versions you like to use.
