Debian for sure!

I've never installed a server only but if I did it would be Debian or Slackware...

I wish I could vote Debian, but it's hard to beat RHEL.

CentOS has never let me down. Being loyal to the one all my servers run on.

batfastad 01-14-2011 03:55 AM

CentOS. Used to use CentOS, then switched to Ubuntu and switched back to CentOS about 18 months ago. Solid.

+1 for Slackware

PrinceCruise 01-14-2011 03:28 PM

Well, this can be turned into another flame-war, coz' I'm yet to see Slack OR Debian OR mentioned XYZ distros as the servers at a serious enterprise level.
Nothing beats RHEL and to some extent CentOS in this category, no matter how much the fanboys keep trying prove their point.Period.

*(Or may be I'm a dumba**s not to see the Slack impact at some enterprise level, if not then I stick to my words ;) )

I agree with PrinceSharma for standard/normal/business servers - nothing beats RHEL.
Of course Gentoo is 1st choice for beleeding edge servers ;)
