Slackware - it just works

I just voted for RHEL on the basis of experience of the server OSs I have worked on so far.
I'm pretty sure Slackware can become a great server OS, given it reaches to the masses that way others are.

If it's not for Linux only, I would've gone for Solaris, ya know. :)

Debian is the distro of my choice when it comes to something complicated as running a server.

Couldn't agree more :)

Not going to mention how I voted. It does run my server though and I am using it now for my desktop. :)

I use slackware everywhere... Why would I change for my server?

Debian gets my vote although I use (have to) RHEL at work for 75% of the servers.

Kind regards,

Slackware, of course.

+1 for Debian. Slackware is also really nice.

Hmm, mine is'nt in there: free BSD. You could technically feed it nuclear stuff :D

Debian ... just rock solid!

I actually used Debian when I ran servers myself, but voted RHEL since for enterprise class servers, they simply can't be beat, and they're service is fantastic. We actually use them at work and we've had to enlist them before for stuff that was beyond the server admins ability (which was everything since I was the only one that knew any linux, and I wasn't an admin).

Slackware, what else ?
