What do you mean by "linux flower".

"Best" is a subjective term. However, for commercial environments RedHat Enterprise Linux seems to have the widest support from 3rd party vendors with Suse being next behind that.

People will tell you that Canonical sells support for Ubuntu which is true but besides the point if you intend to use 3rd party applications that only certify to run on RHEL and/or Suse. That is to say you can make almost anything work on almost any Linux but you won't get support from the maker of the 3rd party product if you call them up and say you're running on a Linux distro they don't list as "supported".

Linux flower?
Slackware = Rose
Ubuntu = Dandelion
Does that help?

No, not when you laugh at people's questions and their poor knowledge of the English language.

Kind regards

If you don't have to pay for it, go with RHEL. Otherwise, I would recommend CentOS for your situation.

No, if anyone wants to use RHEL so he/she must pay for it to avail all its benefits such as good support and updates, etc, otherwise RHEL is of no good use. Otherwise can use CentOS which is much similar to RHEL.

You misunderstand. The reply was saying if the poster himself doesn't have to pay (e.g. his company is paying for it) then to use RHEL. If the poster is trying to save himself money he should use CentOS. CentOS is NOT commercial though so in my view doesn't really solve the OP's original question. CentOS is a binary recompile of RHEL source and can be used in place of RHEL for testing but in Production environments where one wants the 3rd party vendors to support the product he should use RHEL over CentOS.

Ok, you're right. But only OP can only tell us for what purpose he wants to use. But I would like to suggest him to use CentOS for commercial purpose. RHEL for corporate purpose if the company wants to pay for it and ofcourse any company have to pay for using RHEL for availing its benefits. Rest depends on OP, what's his requirements. Isn't it?

I don't get your distinction. Corporate environments ARE commercial. I think the OPs original corporate/commercial designation made it clear what the environment was.
