I have very little experience with linux, though I have been given the task to set up a database server running a data warehouse based on PostgreSQL. My question is which version of Fedora I should choose. I thought of version 12, but I am worried since it is only one month old. If I run into a bug, it could take me months to see that it is not simply me doing something wrong. Another perspective is that if I chose version 11 or 10, then I could run into old bugs or issues that are so complicated for the user and that have been fixed or made easier in newer versions.
Also... Are there any "need to have" features in fedora 12 when running a datawarehouse?
Uptime for the server is not as important as performance.
