Preferred distro for file servers?
Hi...I'm a net admin for a medium sized business and I'm thinking about leaving Windows file servers for Linux.
Is there a 'preferred' distro for file servers?
My needs would be rather minimal but they'd be in a business setting with a few locations and a few dozen users at each site. I wouldn't even need print sharing since I'm already splitting that out from Windows. Just basic file sharing and DNS and DHCP. Pretty basic stuff.
Most clients will be Windows XP/Vista, and a growing number of Macs.
I'm familiar with Ubuntu desktop and server, and some with Debian server. And getting better with the terminal every day.
I'd have some consultants that I hope can do the heavy lifting, like the initial config and data transfer, and I'm waiting to see what they recommend.
But I'd like to know I picked a reasonable enterprise level distro.
