I must migrate my servers to Compaq Proliant DL360G3 machines. We're looking
several IDCs, and all of them say "Only support for RedHat, SuSE and
Caldera". I want to use Debian (I don't like very much SuSE, I've not used
neither Red Hat nor Caldera, and it's hard to change distro when you're happy
with the one you have), but when I comment this point to the salesman, he
says a lot of "It's difficult" "It's not supported" and things like that.
The problem with support is not that there might be difficulties in
installing a piece of software on the hardware.
But if there are problems with hardware and it could be a software or
configuration problem they will tell you first: Install a supported OS
and look if it will do the job. That's all. If you want and need the
expensive, paid support you should better do what they say.
