Office productivity. A Linux network is the bet way to roll out many PCs - the sysadmin keeps control, the employees keep the flexibility - and it scales nicely.

Linux can do all those things very well, however, the numbers don't lie, Linux rules the server market...

I said none of the above, but maybe i should have said multimedia.
I noticed on http://linuxmovies.sourceforge.net/software/index.html
that film is very linuxy now: think scale-able, render-farm.

a render farm falls under the server category, not multimedia...

Server is the answer I'd give, though I use it for multiple reasons.

I am sorry to sound negative but if the poll had been "what are most Linux/Unix boxes used for?" I would have answered {{{servers}}} after a moments thought. I would probably have spent the next few hours beating myself up because I didn't really know the answer but I had answered. The question in this case is "What is the most suitable job for LINUX/Unix" --- I do not have a Windows box at my disposal here at home and have finally limited my workplace to 6 Windows 98 (SE!!!!!! :) ) out of 30 Mandrake/Suse and Debian boxes. Linux has to do everything for me so it has to be suitable for everything. Sometimes I am forced to pull pieces of my own hair out while trying to find a Linux solution to a what would be a simple job in a Windows environment, but in the end I have a superior solution. I don't need high-end graphics or video yet so perhaps I don't have the "need" for the requirements of an OS that this poll demands.
Perhaps I should just go to bed.

I am a Network Admin and we use linux for both server and client and I must say it is nice to use it for server but for client I prefer windows. What we did to minimize overhead is set up a W2k3 box and enabled Terminal services and now all the unix dudes use that. *we need software only available in windows*
