Hi Rajul,

I doubt that performance differences between Linux distributions will be very significant for a Perforce server.  It will probably be much more important to choose a reliable, easily manageable distribution.  I personally prefer Debian for those reasons, simply because I've gotten fed up with the breakage in RedHat releases of things, and I like Debian's package management much better.
