    Favorite Distro for Server Users - 2009


    This poll/thread is meant to help those users that are having difficulty which distribution(s) they should start with when looking for a good Linux server distribution.

    Please use it to post information about your favorite server oriented distro. Do not post any comments saying that any particular distro is the best, because the best truly is very subjective.

    Note that this thread will be locked and/or deleted at the end of the year and a new thread started. The poll from last year can be found here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Currently using (and voted for) Red Hat / Centos but I also really like Ubuntu Server

    Debian has my vote purely because of the slow release cycle which brings along excellent stability

    I voted Slackware. Probably, depending on the situation, I would actually build LFS for the server, but I'm still a Slackware nut, so that's what I voted

    RH/CentOS, 'Nuff said.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
