comment How to keep track of installed software
Imho, the best approach is not to get into this state in the first place. Dictate that all software has to be packaged or it wont be installed, where needed make the package yourself. Then put these on your internal package server.

comment Distro for a startup?
My recommendation would be centos or debian, without selinux. fedora releases too often (and is cutting edge, read: often broken). suselinux may be an option, i've not used it in enterprise. My personal opinion would be centos, as debian installation is a little kludgy, i dont know how well it would work with san units and iscsi etc.

comment What are the differences between the major Linux distributions?
physically, the major difference is usually the package manager used. But yes, target differs, some aim for bing stable, others at being cutting edge.

comment Buying a Linux Machine
to be honest, building a machine isnt very difficult and it'll save you money usually. Besides, as a dev you'll likely have pretty specific requirements. I'd say just build it yourself from the various parts. Should take about 45 minutes.
