Stability and back porting of patches/features (just look at how long CentOS 5 been supported).

Honestly, I prefer CentOS over Ubuntu, but the real statistics appearing anywhere on the internet are different. Web Hosting are usually using Ubuntu. On the other hand, there's possible to discuss what's everything they count, because many of new OS are remade CentOS such as I'd seen about something released by Google, for example.
