Distro for Python
 
Hi all, we're in a project and we need to know what's the best distro for run python (Django). Currently, we use Centos 5.5. If you have some advices I'll pleased to post it.
Thanks a lot.

I don't think there's any distro that is optimised specifically for python (Django). If you're happy with CentOS, you can keep using it. Is there anything particular that you don'l like about CentOS or Django on CentOS?

Hi, thanks for share your answer. I think it, because Ubuntu and Canonical include python and it's native.
Thanks.

of all mainstream distro's , i cannot think of one, that actually doesn't ship with Python in some form.

btw.. Python is crossplatform, so it's always native on any OS.

Ubuntu is not a better distro, but...

A CentOS and Ubuntu comparison is not fair. CentOS mirrors Red Hat's enterprise linux, and therefore is more stable and also not as up to date.

I have found once an Ubuntu distro has been out a couple of months, the level of Python is so close to the latest, or at least new enough to work with packages like MySQLdb and Django, that I don't need to install the latest Python. Despite having said this, I tend to install the latest Python and packages in /usr/local just to have the latest Python.
