SME I believe is built from CentOS - again, it's all from packages that
originated from Red Hat / Fedora so the setup is extremely similar.

SME tries to provide a turnkey setup and to gain ease of setup, you
sacrifice features. It's a trade off only you can decide whether it's
worth it or not. Myself, I would never do that.
