Best distro for Firebird database applications for newbie?


Hello:

Is there a particular distro that would be the 'best' for a newbie to use for developing database applications using Firebird?

Thanks,

Rob.

Get some live CD's and try them out. There is no "best". It depends on the person. No one can decide for you.

I have been using Ubuntu 10.04.

You tried firebird/tried installing firebird on all distros?
Wow - lots of time at your hands, huh.

Last time I tried to install it on a Slackware machine it
was pretty much a total nightmare.


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,
Then I didn't understand the OP's question. Let's analyse it shall we.
Quote:
..for a newbie to use for developing database applications using Firebird?[emphasis mine]
. My interpretation was that the OP wasn't asking about installation but about use. Can you explain to me why one distro would be "better" than another for using already installed applications? That was what I was commenting on.

It's fair enough to claim (not without stimulating much debate) that deb-based distros are easier/harder to use for installation of applications than rpm-based systems. But this is a far cry from asking what the OP was asking. At least that was my understanding of his question but I tend to be rather literal-minded.
ciao,
jdk
