Ubuntu VS Ubuntu Server VS Fedora VS Suse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
Hello every one
I am setting up a webserver, I am paying a lot of money to host my website, it is only a personal website with some videos. I did some research but realized how sophisticated and hard setting up a server could be.
I am torn between Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora. I heard many good things about Ubuntu but not sure what is the difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server.
I read online that Suse is not the best OS for running a server, and I am not familiar with Fedora.
For some reason I am with Ubuntu, but it is just my guts so I need a more accurate answer.
I am a bit confused, I really want to learn one of these OS but not sure were to start and not sure which one is better for my web server.
I appreciate any help
Thank in advance
debian terminal vs ubuntu

I'm trying to run an install script in Debian that works fine in Ubuntu. When it asks me to enter the hostname for the install it errors out saying it needs to be alphanumeric, which it is. Is there a difference in the way the keyboard is interpreted between Ubuntu and Debian?

debian vs ubuntu graphic driver
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
Hi guys, after the latest debian release squeeze, I wanted to try out debian,and go back to the roots of ubuntu. But one thing bother's me, debian doesn't do well with my old intel gpu (i865g). But ubuntu always works nicely with my gpu. I'm confused even having updated my mesa drivers and xorg to the latest i still don't seem able to get any 3d acceleration under debian. But under ubuntu its flawless. I know that ubuntu uses custom made drivers, but what i want to know is what part of the driver do the tweak to get it work like that? I don't mind if you guys answer it technically, i would prefer it the most. Because the sole purpose i took up linux is to learn it.
Debian vs. Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2008
First of all, I would like to state that this in no way is intended to start a flame war, it is simply my curiosity getting the better of me. Please, if I seem trollish, I dont mean to be.
Now that THAT'S out of the way...
What are the major differences between Debian and Ubuntu? As far as I can tell, Ubuntu is a bit better about drivers, and the packages tend to be configured a bit beyond just the default settings. The other thing I can see is the significant lack of effort required to install it, though Debian isn't exactly slacking there either.
I seek enlightenment and nothing more. I'm positive that there are more differences in the underlying software and that I just can't see them.

centOS vs ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2010
Hi all, quick question. I am new to Linux and recently upgraded my hosting plan to a VPS. I was on ubuntu (but didn't have full ssh) and now I am on centOS which is all they offer for this type of plan.
I would prefer to use ubuntu since I am most familiar with it and our Moodle server at work runs on it. Part of why I upgraded was have full root privileges and get more familiar with linux and learn.
How similar are centOS and ubuntu - or any linux distro for that matter? Do all linux distros have very similar directories and commands? I know there will be differences like yum/apt-get but if I get good and comfortable with centOS will I be thrown into another world if I try to work with ubuntu and others?
xubuntu vs ubuntu studio

I've never tried ubuntu studio.
Is there any advantage to have ubuntu studio?
Red Hat vs Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 8, 2007
I'm about to make a choice between servers and I need an honest, UNBIASED opinion. Which Linux is better for server software, Red Hat or Ubuntu. Right now I know the layout of Ubuntu and its free. But redhat seems to know what it is doing and its only $80(I say only $80 because I think of the cost of servers for Mac and Windows).
So what should I go with? Red Hat or Ubuntu. What are the real pros and cons.
Red Hat/Fedora Vs Ubuntu For My Career Use
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2008
I want to work with GNU/Linux for the rest of my life, and I want to know which distro will help me in the future. I really like Ubuntu, but if getting Red Hat certified will make me more money/give me a better understanding of what companies want on their servers I will learn that.
So, any professionals out there? What did you learn and make money off of?
Oh just for clarification, I would like to focus my skills in networking, whether it be in a local or world wide sense.
Let's not turn this into a bashing thread. Keep it professional.
