Which Linux distro for WRF EMS - Debian or?

Post by lilliana » Tue Dec 07, 2010 5:50 am

From among Debian, SuSE, Fedora and CentOS, which should I chose? I've been using Red Hat Linux Enterprise edition for quite some time now. I'm not too fond of the fact that I need to pay to update. So I'm planning to change to a different distro. So please help me select one. Thanks in advance!

Hello,

Centos is 100% compatible with RedHat, in fact it is the same operating system with removed RH branding, nothing more. So I think you will be happy with it.

I'm using OpenSUSE without any problems. Only you have to switch from shell to bash.

Scientific Linux is freely available from CERN. Periodically updated according to a strict schedule. It is a compilation from the last Red Hat Enterprise. I use it without any problem for WRF EMS 3.1 on a 8 CPU machine. They made the choice to follow this distro so they will not change...

Hello,

I am running WRF EMS on Debian without any problems, both on 32bit and 64bit architecture.

Best regards,
Jonas

We are on Fedora 14 here. More current hardware support is what we needed since our motherboard and CPU are so new.
