I'm installing a kitchen wall where upper cabinets will be installed. I'm wondering if I should install plywood or drywall on the studs. Seems that advantages for plywood are:
a. bettter hanging capability
b. flatter, smoother surface
If I install tile on the wall, will tile adhere to the plywood as well as the drywall?

just put blocking in between the studs where the tops and bottoms of the cabinets will be and drywall over everything. you will still have plenty of wood to screw the cabinets to and wont even have to measure if you get blocking between all the studs and tile on wood is not a good idea. if you use plywood and have to paint any of it it will look like painted plywood.
