Cisco had an RHEL rebuild (internal) at one time, called, refreshingly enough, Cisco Enterprise Linux.  Cisco also uses/used a Linux base for their Content Engines and subsequent ACNS-running boxen.

The rather high-priced ADVA-sourced Cisco  Metro 1500 DWDM boxes used a 486 ISA single-board computer running off of DiskOnChip SSD for control and SNMP.

Having said that, I'd be just about as comfortable with a BSD as with a Linux.

And I do, and will continue to, run CentOS in production.
