What flavor of Linux is best for webpages?


I am a newbee wanting to launch my first Linux server for webpages. Which is the best version to use? Is it free? Are there inerfaces that avoid line scripting?

anyone distro will work. If you want us to give you a better recommendation system specs would help. Then once you have the OS installed you use something like apache. apache will work for any distro. and yes it is free

Try RedHat Fedora Core 5; or take a look at distrowatch.com or look at the many threads that ask the same qn ie which distro... it really is a matter of personal choice. (I'd avoid self-build/compile ones like LFS, Gentoo etc for a new person.)
If your website is going to be hosted by a webhosting company or ISP, you'll prob have to use the one they recommend, else they won't support it.. (or even let you use it.)

chrism01 makes an excellent suggestion. distrowatch is an excellent resource that lets you take your time and read up on all the different flavors...the pros and cons and compare to see which flavor is exactly what you're looking for.
