in thread What would be the best Linux build to run perl on?

Red Hat 7.0 really doesn't deserve the bad reputation it has been given. Once updated with the appropriate RPMs, it is a stable distribution.

For those new to Linux, Red Hat is a great choice. So many developers make RPM packages. (Although I don't like their recent change to a fee-based system for the automatic updater. Just find a local FTP mirror and get the RPMs there.)

But, as you say, there are stronger distributions for those with a bit more experience.

I hope this doesn't start a flame war, as I am already dangerously offtopic. :-)

Update: Forgot "of" in the title. I need more sleep....
