Does linux fedora or any linux platform need programming knowledge because I have used windows 2003 for dedicated server but never used linux and lots of people here suggest me to use linux so im asking for suggestiong how does linux work, just the basic, like does it require u to know programming or what ?
just make sure your hardware is supported. if you bought your server more than a year ago, most distro will have driver for your hardware.
Actually, if you have installed Windows of any flavor, then you're already well on your way. The operating system is a lot easier, for the most part, to install. There are a few distros out there which can get you up and running with about 4 mouse clicks.
