[tex-live] TeX Live versus teTeX

I do not feel that I have a good understanding of the relationship between 
TeX Live (http://www.tug.org/texlive/) and teTeX 
(http://www.tug.org/tetex/).  It would seem that these are both 
distributions of TeX and that I should choose between them when 
considering adding TeX to a new system.  How should I decide between TeX 
Live and teTeX?

I have also observed that teTeX seems to be more widely distributed, in 
that RPMs for it are in RedHat Linux distributions, and there is a Solaris 
package available at http://www.sunfreeware.com.  The TUG home page 
however, advertises TeX Live and does not mention teTeX.  Is TeX Live more 
official or supported by TUG than teTeX?

Please let me know how I should view these two distributions.
