We are evaluating few linux distor to select a new Linux OS for production. We used to have openSuse 10.2. it was stable and reliable,however it contains many unnecessary applications and services that we had to keep updating and patching.
We are looking for the more reliable Linux distro, a good support for java, tomcat, jboss, and apache, has the least non-production services and applications and of course secure.

I know you can't have a perfect Linux OS but which one is more meant for production as web application server?

So far I got Centos (recommended by gheist)

Thank you.
