Oracle support that would leave three options

Suse Enterprise Linux
Redhat Enterprise Linux
Oracle unbreakable Linux


Unless you just mean a Distro you can run Oracle on, then theres a whole slew of community Distros.

If Distro stability is a primary factor in a community distro, then I would have to say Debian 5 Stable (Lenny). Stability is one of hte points Debian prides itself on.

I would say Pure Debian stable is absolutely terrific.
It's fast, it';s stable, it's customizable, it has an awesome package management system with over 20,000 packages in the repositories.

Want something more up to date, then move to the testing branch..

Stability not as important as the latest packages move to the unstable branch


It's the base for a ton of other Child Distros which in itself should be a tribute to Debian.. The most famous child distros would have to be Knoppix and Ubuntu


Lots of great Distro choices and you will probably get a lot of recommendations for peoples favorite Distros.. (yes I'm guilty too)
