    Default Choosing community distro to host Zimbra

    Hi, new member's first post here!

    I've (finally!) managed to free up a machine (AMD-64 powered - pre-Pacifica) and would like to start evaluating and playing with Zimbra with a view to influencing clients. I am a consultant rather than a techie, so I'm not driven to spending a lot of time in the bit-bucket doing multiple (re-)installs, etc.

    Examining "Open Source Edition Downloads" http://www.zimbra.com/community/downloads.html I see that all of the 'free' distributions mentioned are somewhat old (Fedora is up to 9.0, SuSE to 11.0, and Ubuntu 8.04).

    Can I download and use one of the later releases of the above without too much fear, or is this asking for trouble and I should back-off to the versions listed?

    Should I build a 32-bit machine given the apparently lesser enthusiasm for 64-bit versions of Zimbra?

    Please advise,
    =dn

    CentOS 5.2 is a binary compatible build of RHEL, I'd recommend that. Many of the forums users have it runing Zimbra (as I do) quite successfully.
