I was running 64-bit FreeBSD 7.0, but had to remove it to run Suse 11.
32-bit Fedora 9 and 64-bit Suse 11 ship with fully functional Java
environments. If your primary goal is to use Java, I can recommend
either of these platforms. I got a complex 3rd party Java project
(Geometric Algebra graphics) installed and running with absolutely no
problems on these platforms.  (BTW, I had no prior experience worth
mentioning with Java :-) ),
