[p4] Which Linux Distro do you recommend for running Perforce

My company is planning to migrate the Perforce server from Sun/Solaris
hardware to Intel/Linux.

Any particular recommendations on version of Linux to use?

Some people at work including myself have been playing with RedHat Fedora
and find it quite stable but RedHat particularly doesn't position Fedora as
something one might want to use for production server (besides the fact that
they don't make any money that way). Any thoughts?

Also, any idea if Linux has the same performance problems with regard to
locking as Solaris over NFS when db.* files are on a NetApp?

Thanks,

Rajul
