Specs: ? linux, USparc IIIi 1.5 gh x2 8 gb ram
We have a Sun Fire V240 dual Ultrasparc IIIi processors which we would like to convert to Linux.

Which is the best Linux solution? Will SuSE Linux work? Is Oracle Linux now the best OS?

Will be used to support distance learning live HD classrooms for K12 kids who cannot attend school.

Thanks

"Which is the best Linux solution?"

That depends on what you want to do with it and what your comfort level with Linux is.

"Will SuSE Linux work?"

No. SuSe is not compiled for SPARC.

"Is Oracle Linux now the best OS?"

Oracle Enterprise Linux is not compiled for SPARC either.

"Will be used to support distance learning live HD classrooms for K12 kids who cannot attend school."

I'm afraid I don't quite understand what this is. What applications will you be trying to use, what form is the content you are delivering to the children going to be in, and what is the planned delivery method?
