Question server distro


I know the basics of linux and have used redhat 5.2 (don't laught!) on a old pc for a while. Now I'm getting a new and want to use linux more serious so I wonder what distro should I use if I want to learn to maintain servers. What distro is best for that is it slackware? or something else?

I've heard/read that Slackware and/or Debian is the best for server OS!

Accorcing with I review I read.

Slackware came out the most secure distro in the world... with the lest bugs.

this comparison was with all OSs, linux distros, windows, solaris, iris. and more...

BELIEVE IT OR NOT ! !

ITS THE TRUTH ! !!

I like Slack and I use Slack, but don't always believe what you read in reviews. I wouldn't believe its the most secured out of all OS's.
The best way to secure any OS is usually up to the person Administering it.

I would suggest Debian, Slackware or any *BSD for server purpose now if you want real security (and command line based distro) use Trustix or Clarkconnect for ADSL gateway or Immunix.
there is so much choice around that you'll better try them all and see what is most suitable for your taste.

Regards
