A few short years ago the choice of which Linux for EDA was a clear question of redhat 7.2 which was widely supported by many of the EDA vendors.
Since then Red Hat released 7.3, 8.0 and 9.0 before splitting into the Enterprise Edition and Fedora Core Versions. Some people believe this also opened the EDA door to other vendors such as Suse.
Please feel free to chime in as an EDA user or EDA developer as to which Linux release you are actively using for live EDA projects. Please post both your Linux release and what EDA tools you are using on that release. Also you may note if you want if it is to your best knowledge officially supported by the EDA vendor and if you have had any troubles.
