Exclamation Help needed asap

Ok so ill start off with saying ive been running a mini server farm for ftp hosting for a long time and been using microsoft server 2003.


i hate microsoft server. its been giving me all sorts of trouble and i cant afford the down time.
ok so what im asking is you guessed it, what operating system should i pick?

my servers run a standard ide config
and im very experianced in ubuntu
thats the only distro ive used mainly, but i dont like using it as a server either, so what im looking for is a operating system that can run a graphical interface with a graphical ftp server. like gproftpd.

i want a os that deosnt have much to it but can easiely be set up and get going quick
i also have to be able to remote desktop it from a windows machine.

my servers have to hard drives, i want to merge them together as i can in windows to make a big one

im a noob ill admit so i need advice

and if you want to guid me thrue this my email is and my yahoo msnger is animebsd and skype is animebsd

That depends on your preferences. I've got many server up and running with different distros, such as: Ubuntu Server, SLES, Debian, Arch Linux and RHEL (CentOS). I haven't any problems in configuration with any of them, so it's really up to you.

P.S. I prefer debian-based distros for their packet manager and system configuration utilities.
