What would make you believe one was better than the other in that regard? –  slhck Apr 12 '13 at 12:47
@slhck: By better I meant, better support of tools for java developement. –  Priyank Thakkar Apr 12 '13 at 13:08
Yes, that's what I meant: Those are all Linux distributions, so why should anything be supported less in one compared to the other? –  slhck Apr 12 '13 at 13:16
They all pretty much have the same tools. Why don't you determine which tools you like the best on each platform and go from there. –  Ramhound Apr 12 '13 at 13:46

1 Answer 1

All are suitable. In general, all Linux distributions are suited for development purposes. Yes, Eclipse will work on them all. So will Java.

However, if you are a beginner to Linux as well, I would suggest to go with Ubuntu.
