Why recommend CentOS for asterisk?

Often read the recommendation to put it on asterisk CentOS.

What exactly caused such a recommendation?
Than, for example, a bad ubuntu or debian for a asterisk'?

: What special? Works. Weak hardware support? Yes there are. Digium zabashlyat for porting wood under your cards, if card interface is compatible - it will work, OpenVox s course by flying. But to port the wood with Linux - maybe not even hurt difficult. The no GUI for settings - so the asterisk is much better sawed through text configs.

When was the book from oreilly, it is in detail described operation of asterisk on the tsentosa. There and gone. + for rpm from asterisk has its own, separate repository. And what better rhel or deb - the subject of a separate holivara.

IMHO, wider support from hardware manufacturers and hypervisors (the legacy RHEL)
Hardly true today.
Unless for some special glands associated with Asterisk. - Laney_Stros commented on July 8th 19 at 11:52
Support in the form of stability, but recent versions of packages - it is not about CentOS. - Pear commented on July 8th 19 at 11:55

Because Asterisk since its inception was written and used by the authors in this distribution.
In the early versions may have been differences in the work on other distributions.
Someone said something about these "historic historically" and gave examples, so long ago it was, I do not remember.

It is now irrelevant.
