I don't think any linux distro is better than the other for what you are 
looking for.  It is more about which you are more comfortable with.  If 
you will be installing RT on your own (i.e. not using the distro version 
even if available) then your choice is a matter of which distro you 
prefer.  I have run RT on Debian, Ubuntu, Redhat and SUSE, all installed 
manually rather than using debs, rpm or the like.  They are all equally
