Best distro for home developement/file sharing server
I presently connect to the web through a Linksys modem/router, which also provides a wireless network in the house. My desktop (WinXP/Mandriva SE2005) connects via ethernet, and I have a laptop connecting wirelessly.
I want to set up a server on the network, so I can use it for my web developement and perhaps for filesharing later on. At the moment I am unsure which kind of distro would be the best to run the server. I have copies of Mandriva SE 2005 and Ubuntu already, but I am unsure if they would be the best option. I know that RedHat and Fedora are the most popular OS's, would these be better?
My goal is a LAMP set up.
