SAP is going......

By Choppit ·
After 6 years of pain, we're finally getting rid of SAP R/3 and the accepted replacement is based on Linux/MySQL. The solution vendor has a preference for supporting SLES or RHEL and my (limited) experience has been solely with RH in non-critical applications. This is a real opportunity for me to get involved with Linux and although the last 2 years have been spent tinkering with RH I have no problem with refocussing on Suse. At some point in the future I'd also like to pursue Linux certification.

I'd appreciate any advice on choosing between SLES/RHEL and also which is likely to give me the most career mileage.

it actually boils down

to do you want to tie yourself to Novell, or to Red Hat?

Novell's Suse and Red Hat's Enterprise linux are only 2 of the many options suitable for enterprise use.

I personally would go with Novell's SuSe before Red Hat, as I have personally had numerous issues with red hat.
( and I can't even install suse on my system as suse uses scsi for kernel plugable modules and my bios doesn't like scsi interface )

debian woody is one I would actually choose before any of the corporate versions. and lfs is what I use by choice in reality.
building everything yourself is to time consuming for any large enterprise, so I wouldn't recommend it for you.
