( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
One of my main requirements is the ability to manage and maintain all my Perl stuff via CPAN independent of the package manager of the OS or distro. Too many distributions try to package up and maintain the popular CPAN modules but in the end fall behind, run over stuff you've installed yourself via CPAN, or a combination of both.

That being said, a distribution that I can have absolute control over is required. OpenBSD if you want to go the *BSD route (more familiar to you if you use Solaris), Gentoo Linux for complete control of the distribution and it's components, or Arch Linux if you want the same amount of control as Gentoo but without having to deal with compiling *everything*.

My personal choice is Arch Linux on laptops, OpenBSD on servers. Of course, if you don't want anything other than a *very* basic package manager, go with the tried and true Slackware Linux.

    [marioroy]: Disciplus My wife and I went on vacation. At work, I was stuck polling SNMP from 20 million devices. It would hang at 80,000. On the mist boat, hear a voice to enable grace in the design that 10x and more performance awaits.

    [marioroy]: Perl is so powerful that it can poll 40 metrics from 20 million devices in 40 minutes using 4 nodes only.

    [Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, I can't decide whether or not to move my RolePlaying:: Random:: modules to just Random::. I'm not as sophisticated as most here.
