    Smile Can version 10 be used as a server?


    I purchased the boxed set of SuSE Linux 10.0 a couple weeks ago. I have worked with it some and am enjoying the experieince.

    I do have one question about it though. From what I have seen, with version 10.0 there is only one version and not multiple versions. I had originally thought that the boxed set of version 10 was for like a personal computer or workstation version. Could it also be used as an actual server operating system that is geared primarily for the purpose of being a web server?

    Thanks,
    Ira

    Linux can be used in a varity of situations. There is only one version because with that one version you can do it all (unlike windows where you have to pay thousands more for a webserver). The program 'apache' is the webserver program. You can install it through YaST.

    Thanks for the clarification on that point, I am glad things are much more straightforward, certainly makes things easier on someone like me who will need to do Internet/Intranet web service work as well as development work.
