Forum OpenACS Development: Re: New linux distribution to replace defunct RedHat consumer?
suse was a little easier to haggle with. personally, i like suse a lot just because i've happened to have better luck with it -- and now it's backed by novell.
i've never used debian, but it seems similar to freebsd which is my overall choice. if you know exactly what you need to put on the machine, it works very well and the update system is great.
if we settle on freebsd, i'll volunteer to do the package stuff.
