Dear all,

what I never understood is: why are people not using Debian?

I done some cluster installation (up to 100 or so nodes) with Debian, more or 
less out of the box, and I did not have any issue with it. I admit, I might 
have missed out something I don't know about, the famous unkown-unkowns, but 
by enlarge the clusters were running rock solid with no unusual problem. 
I did not use Lustre or GPFS etc. on it, I only played around a bit with BeeFS 
and some GlusterFS in a small scale. 

Just wondering, as people mentioned Ubuntu.

All the best from a dark London
