    i voted FreeBSD, althought is not linux....

    i think itīs one of the most used on the internet, its stabillity is really good...
    my second choise would be RedHat, because thatīs what they do, an OS for enterprices, i wouldnt choose fedora, because its like the testing doll of red hat, you never know what you can find, thought is great for desktop...

    my third choice woul be hmmmmm.... gentoo or suse.... gentoo gets you optimal peformance an suse, i donīt know any other reason than YAST (i love it!).

    i wouldnt choose slack for two reason:
    - no package management.
    - not easy, i know gentoo is harder but at least it optimices your pc compiling everything from source.

    bye...

    pd: i do thing that debian shoul be on the list...

    ty

    i didn't put debian on my list because it would be easier for me, considering my task list after getting a server up and running, to not even consider a deb distro. mostly, this is because some peeps i'm working on some of my projects with say they would prefer not to use these tyes of distros. i guess i would be considered the director of most of these projects, but the other peeps are working on specific areas because they know more than i about their tasks.....so i'm sticking with their recommendations. i have too much to learn right now, which doesn't allow for any time on figuring out why a debian distro wouldn't work well for us. at least for now.

    Apache is a webserver running on top of linux, bsd or even windows. You basicly set up a linux/bsd/whatever server, install and setup apache on it and then you have a webserver.
