Dr. Nixon is much more qualified than I am to describe the
situation.  In few words, my experience was: gLite => scientific linux.
This, I felt, might explain why the previous poster indicated
that so many LHC data analysis sites used Scientific Linux.
I want to thank Dr. Nixon for the much greater precision.
