Re: Debian/Ubuntu/Redhat which is better for heavy duty computations?

It's mostly a matter of taste.
I use Debian for servers because it's easily maintainable and stable.
I use Ubuntu for workstations because it's userfriendly and has Xorg.
I use RedHat when software is only certified for RedHat and porting it
would take too much time or a supplier won't support it if it's ported.
