Best slicehost server OS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2008
Which of these (or others) would you guys consider the best server choice and why? Which is most stable? which is most solid? Easiest to manage? Currently I'm running an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS server, but I was thinking about using Debian or CentOS.
Here's what Slicehost currently offers (You can install another distro over what they offer as well, so maybe BSDs can be an option as well):
Best Lightweight Server OS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 21, 2013
My dad has some windows server on his old PC and its being really slow (opening files, the explorere window takes forever, IE takes forever) so he is thinking of putting just a regular operating system in there such as Win7 however I don't think it'll run we'll. He has a Pentium 4 2.53ghz, 1GB of memory and 2 hard drives. He doesn't want XP because he says its too slow (although I really don't think it's that slow) so I recommended linux however he say linux doesn't have the applications he wants to use. (I'm almost sure they do)
I am looking for a widely supported linux OS that can run on old PCs (no puppy linux) but also used for servers. Debain seems pretty good however If its out there I would want something more lightweight, something with LXDE. I know you can install LXDE in Debain but the default LXDE UI looks ugly IMO. Do you guys know of any OS's that fit this desc? It doesn't have to be extremely user friendly, my dad will learn how to use it. (He used to use DOS)

What is the best Linux based Server OS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 20, 2012
I was walking home from school yesterday and saw an old IBM Thinkpad r31 laptop just chucked on the footpath. I put it in my bag and went home. I opened it up and turned it on. It worked perfectly. The only physical damage that it had was the scratches and a cracked screen from where they chucked it. I removed the screen. Cleaned up the inside and replaced a few things that were a bit dirty or permanently damaged from overuse. It is pretty old (from 2003 ithink). But it still has ample hardware capabilities to transfer files and be my downloading pc. Pretty much it is still the stock laptop but it has no screen. It has Windows XP Professional on it but i don't want to use XP. (I'm a linux user only) Do you guys know a good server os that i can use? There are 3 computers and 1 laptop in my house and i want to hook them up to the server. (Preferably wireless).
Thanks in advance.
Best Samba File server OS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2013
I have had intermediate experience with linux and I want to make my vista computer a server that runs linux. It has 4gb of RAM, and an AMD Phenom II 2.3 triple core. I just want a simple Samba file server that can store documents and videos that is simple to set up and very stable and rarely needs rebooting. I can't figure out which Linux distro is best for my needs, I've narrowed it down to CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, and SUSE enterprise. SO if you guys could help me find the best stable server os, that'll be great

Best Server OS for a file sharing server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2009
I am building my first server for myself and a group of friends to use as a media file sharing computer. The server, as of now, is not going to be running any applications, but that may change in the future. The types of files that we will have on the server are avi, mp3, jpg, etc. I am very familiar with computers, I have built and worked on many PCs, but I am not a server person. I help maintain the server at my work, Windows based OS. I need an OS that is easy to use and uses a GUI. This server will probably just be on a LAN and not connected to the internet, but it maybe later, so security is not a major aspect.
Best way to install a preconfigured Server OS repeatedly, Remotely.
- date: March 14, 2013
So my manager, always scheming for new ways to make money, has come to me about his latest idea. He wants me to start installing vicidial server software remotely for a fee. For anyone not familiar with vicidial, here are the install instructions... http://wiki.vicidial.org/index.php/VICI:UbuntuInstall
...yeah. So if at all possible, I'd like to be able to simply install a preconfigured Linux OS+vicidial remotely over the internet. I've been investigating iPXE and other options. I need to keep the amount of techincal involvement of the end user to a minimum, since many of our clientele will be in other countries, with poor english and technical comprehension.
So if any of you have any ideas of how I can best go about this, I would deeply appreciate it. I'm just a lowly PC tech, but my boss thinks I'm a pc goddess who can do anything @[email protected]
