Oracle on Linux ..... Red Hat vs. Suse

Have been unable to arrive at a definitive position regarding the question of 'which is the preferred distribution of Linux .... vis--vis Oracle'. I have inherited Suse Oracle Implementations which are Oracle Corp. certified and have had little or no problems. There are other Red Hat (non-Oracle) servers in the 'group' .... we are looking to 'standardize' on one distribution. I am pro Suse (as I have Oracle databases currently on Suse) whereas there are other application owners that seem to be pro Red Hat, obviously they are running Red Hat. My understanding is that the situation evolved from 'temporary evaluation' implementations which somehow (gosh ... wonder how that happened ?) are now in 'production'. If the general consensus is that 'it is a moot point' .... I will comply with the majority. I purposely know not which distribution is the most widely deployed. However, someone will have to migrate to achieve a standard platform.

Any further comments .... Please ! All are welcomed ..... objective, subjective, inductive, deductive, rational, irrational, emotional and experiential. TIA
