Which Linux Distro for java development


Hi Guys...

I'm stuck...What's the best distro available for enterprise java development? I've looked at redhat and mandrake. The problem is, on redhat 9.0 I can get my development tools running (Websphere Studio 5, DB2..etc), but on Mandrake 9.2 I could get my tv card and other cool aps working. I Really like Mandrake, but can't get my dev tools up and running, and redhat's security really sucks...

Is there another distro out there that's good for enterprise development? I use the following tools:

- VMWare 4
- Websphere Studio App V5
- DB2 8.1
- XawTV (South Africa)
- Websphere 5

Thanx
Martin Coetzee (South Africa)

there's no best distro... you're just having issues with a particular program... it's not the case that you can say "application xyz will only work on distro abc" that's just nonsense...
