Heya. I'm gonna set up a server for the following uses:
-SMB File Sharing + Backup
-Half Life Server
-GCC Compiling cause I write some big ass programs
-Some Apache hosting (I know apache like the back of my hand)
Which distro would you reccomend? I have a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise CD that I might use just to learn it, but I'm really loving Linux so much I'm not sure if I wanna go back
So what distro would you reccomend? I'm willing to try slack or debian if it's really gonna be a speed boost, but I know a lot of professionals that use Red Hat.
And don't say Mandrake......I wanna try a new distro
And if a *BSD system would work better, go ahead and reccomend that.
Oh, this sytem is gonna be a 1GHz dell box with 256MB or ram that I have lying around. It's gonna get shoved in a corner and be remotely managed......on a dual OC48 at my school
