I ain't sure if this is a right forum to ask this question. Please let me know which SE site I have to use, in case I am on the wrong forum.
I have started learning Hadoop & I have tried Hortonworks on my system (using VmWare or VirtualBox). I don't want to work on distribution provided by any company reason:
- As I am expecting new projects from clients so I would need to install only required component on the server.
- I want to learn Hadoop more deeper.
Now, being from Windows background I am searching for a OS which is suitable for Hadoop (I just want to install Hive & Spark). Doing a limited knowledge search on Google I came to know that following OS are suitable for installing Apache Hadoop
- Linux Mint
I am looking for a OS which can run on my laptop (6 GB RAM) and also I can recommend to run on the Enterprise production server. Also, being a beginner & from MS background I want installation & maintenance to be hassle free. Which OS will do best for me because I will be using same OS to work on personal computer as well as for Enterprise production server.
