Subject RE: Best Linux For Apache/Tomcat (SuSE or Red Hat?)
Date Sat, 12 Apr 2003 20:58:38 GMT
Ha?  Where did you get that info?  Suse is a viable if not a more viable
server environment.  The new Suse Entpeprise Server beats hands down of
Redhat in all categories.

A bit of inside.  Not too long ago, a large corporation (can't disclose the
name) evaluated RH and Suse for running mission critical servers.  And Suse
server environment, beat hands down of Redhat.

Remember that Red Hat is much more an environment for server
applications, where SuSE is more for client applications. So I would
recommend Red Hat, though I use SuSE on my own as well.

I personally run all my java stuff on RH (versions 7.2-8.0) and find it
relatively simple, due to the fact, that there are a lot of RPM packages
for many java libraries and applications, including JDK and Tomcat.  See for a good collection.

Note, that the new RedHat 9.0 has issues with Sun's JDKs.  You should
use the latest one from
