What is the ideal hardware platform to run any operating system? Nobody can answer that question. You should choose your hardware in regards to your needs, not your OS. Tell us what you want to achieve and we may recommend hardware to you.

Agree with TobiSGD on that. "Ideal" for someone doing solid-modeling and driving five monitors is going to be far different from Joe User who doesn't do anything but work on spreadsheets and check emails twice a day.

RHEL hardware requirements can be found on their website, and are usually given as minimums. Again, RHEL has several flavors...from workstation to Enterprise Virtual server. Define your needs first, then put the right hardware in place to meet them, just like you'd have to for Windows or Mac's.

there is no such thing as "red hat fedora linux"

there is Red Hat
then there is Fedora

they are VERY VERY different Operating systems
and have VERY different Min. hardware requirements .

also the Two have VERY different uses
they are designed for very different tasks

one a R&D testing home set up and the other as a server
