OK, I don't mean to open a flame war or anything, but I am building up a
machine to do beta testing on our calendar and some other graphical analysis
programs on (STL viewers and converters, PLY builders, etc). Right now, we
run Debian 3.0 on our calendar, but it is *very* sparse (mini-OS and Apache
to house our calendar).

I was wondering what OS you would recommend (which Linux version) that is
the most stable, while allowing for a good GUI engine to manage the graphics
aps? I know SuSE, Mandrake (which I know pretty well), and RedHat, and I
will probably try them both out (since while I'm testing I can blow out the
machine at will), but are there some others you have experience with that
you know to be pretty easy to install and run very stable? It will house the
OS, apache (or some web server), FTP server, and some graphics apps. Thanks
