Subject Re: Started learning Hadoop. Which distribution is best for native install in pseudo distributed mode?
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2014 10:05:14 GMT
As a beginner, it depends on what you want to learn? Do you want to program MapReduce, just
do some SQL queries to hadoop, or install, deploy and monitor a Hadoop cluster? 

This article might help making a good decision:
