what kind of Linux is the best way for server Server is for web hosting, FTP, Email, Gaming,...
I'm looking around and I see SUSE Linux and Clark Connect
Please for help
None of the above. Try CentOS instead.
I would recommand Debian...
Debian is the best GNU/Linux distro for any kinda server. It's like a admin's dream come true.
I heard from friend, the Debian is the best for server
I test debian and CentOS next week and I see what is better
one of the best for servers
and suse for home use
Ubuntu has a server edition that is very easy to use, and easily switched to or from a desktop. No idea about performance but it's certainly competent enough for small use.
I like the option of just downloading a single server applications cd and not the whole 4 cd package with centos.
Try a BSD system like OpenBSD or FreeBSD for a server. They also make good home systems if you like an OS that doesn't spoonfeed you.
Hey, thanks for that tips! I have been trying to run a server on Ubuntu, but I have had some problems...
How do I switch?
both of Debian, RedHat or others.. excactly going back to the user and network administrator..
although Debian or RedHat has many advantages or others but the administrator doesn't understand it well.. of course this resource could not be reached well.
You can use Clark Connect or Debian
I use Fedora, but debian and redhat are the most popular and with great support.
How about Debian based Ubuntu?
I am considering on using this one...any comments?
I test Debian, Clark Connect, Suse and Red Hat next month and I see what is the best
I say SUSE :very stable very user friendly has a very good wiki ,support and it works i currently use sles 9 , 10 but at home i use opensuse 10.1 which is brilliant for desktop and server .u can use YaST for most of your tasks and in the need of very very rainy days you can have support (paid but support).
Either Debian or Ubuntu are what I would say to go with.
I have run game servers for a few years now and I use Debian on all of them. They have done me well from a PII with 64MB of RAM file server all the way to my newest PIII 500mhz 350mb RAM CS server. Apt-get and the graphical version, synaptic are two of the greatest tools ever implemented into a linux distribution.
i have used Ubuntu as a server with few problems that a command line fix didn't make it all better and smooth.

You don't want a distro that spoonfeeds you as a server. I recommend Gentoo, as it's fast, light and it doesn't come with too many apps by default. Ubuntu is definately a waste of recources.
Of course I don't know how good you're at linux and how fast the server needs to be...
