Don't worry I am not a fanatic. ;-)

I use Fedora because it was the natural path to follow when you are a 
long time Red Hat user (as is my case, since version 6.x - 5 years ago) :-)

Just for the records, Fedora also integrates a lot of java code, 
including eclipse and a lot of apache projects. This code is compiled to 
native code (machine code), that means it is very fast. My problem here 
is that no matter how much they integrate, they don't have the versions 
of libs I am using. So I prefer to install all the stuff myself.

I still don't got an answer to the initial question:

"I'd say Suse is the Windows under the *ix Os'es.
If you can live with that.."

I don't got the point. For me windows is in first place a buggy OS or it is because Suse is
the most used *ix version used?

If you though the second statement, AFAIK, all the numbers point out that Red Hat is the most
used Linux distro. I believe this is the reason why people often say that "Red Hat is the
Microsoft equivalent in the Linux world". ;-)
