Debian (and Ubuntu - based on Debian) and FreeBSD all use Exim by
default. I'm not sure about any Linux distros other than Debian.
I've seen a couple ISPs and such before that use sendmail - but that was
simply a mandate from the higher ups that didn't know anything about
mail servers. Evidently Sendmail was the only software name they
recognized, so they decided it needed to be the only one used in their
company - none of the techs liked it.
Personally, I think sticking with qmail is a pretty good choice.
