Well I ahve decided to use Linux on my server machine. HOwever I am torn as to which distro to use. I have read that Ubuntu is better, but i h ave read the same thing about several other distros. any suggestions as which one to use?
I am running a private server for my wife and friends right now on a linux box. Ubuntu LTS 8.04.
It's running pretty well actually, other than lacking a decent processor. Setting it up was pretty easy as well, as long as you know how to work with the terminal. Most of the posts I ran through to install different things (Hey0, Runecraft, Backup script) gave the actual command to run through and install so it was just a matter of following directions.
I've seen others using CentOS, but Ubuntu for me works perfect with no hiccups.
