I'd say Gentoo...Just because it can be optimized for pretty much anything...

    I dunno, probably in the hundreds, big companies use it, and game deveolpers such as the legendary Id Software.

    hehe, im guessing linux version of maya is freakin' expensive.
    i got my hands on a version of it back in the days of suprnova.org, before the MPAA shut it down for copyright violations and so on, Ok its not something to be proud, but i just wanted to try maya on linux (im not even a maya user) I stick to learning to use blender -- that thing has got a future!

    I beleive there's also a version for solaris.

    Let me just say that solaris is a excellent os, and is highly underestimated, the only problem it's got which unfortuantley what puts it off people, is the dhcp config.

    No not solaris....why? for the sake of god..
    Solaris is sun's *.nix system. SGI has it's own IRIX.

    Linux is supported since it's open source and has a large userbase.
    Solaris has the same small userbase as IRIX.

    Maya is for:

    MAC OS X
    IRIX
    WINDOWS
    LINUX (officially RED HAT supported distro)

    Personally i got maya also runnig without fuss on:

    - SuSE
    - Mandriva
