Internally, Cadence uses IBM T41 ThinkPad laptops with RHEL 3.0/4.0. So do we, so do a lot of companies. The are the best in my opinion.
SuSE and CentOS are fine too.

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is a well-suited version to run EDA tools especially for the laptops, Cadence IC5141 (5033), ADS2008, Modelsim, Cosmos work well on it.

Ill discourage you from using Ubuntu.
I've being called several times to fix weird issues of EDA on Ubuntu with regards to multi-libs on different architectures.
Some even took a week to get ic5033 back on track.
I would recommend you RHEL, or its clone CentOS, at least you'll have time to sleep and a smile on your face.

I've been working with my issues closely with RHEL and CentOS developers. They helped me a lot via the Fedora community and the existing bugs are now fixed upstream.
