I am new to Linux and want to set up a simple (hassle free) development environment for Oracle's Application Express. As a personal development environment, I do not anticipate any more than one or two users at a time.

O/S must support local access to the database as well as remote access to the database.

Would Ubuntu Desktop serve my purposes?
