I had an IRC disagreement this past week with someone, and I ended up laughing at him and he wondered why. He told the entire room that he was running his servers on Ubuntu. I don't really know why, but I just think thats more of a personal *nix O/S, not so much for servers. You are always hearing that peeps are running centOS or something else, but never the U. Thoughts on this? What do you run or your provider if its not your own?

Ubuntu does have a "server edition". IMO, if one knows what he's doing, the distro he's using will not be making that much of a difference on the overall stability and performace.

I am fairly certain this person has no idea what they are doing. Its really bad when you pop on a chat service like IRC and ask the most simple questions that really have nothing to do with hosting, its more like "Where is the any key".

BSD is not Linux, much as Linux is not Windows.

Centos certainly is the most popular, and we run it on 99% of our servers. However, you have some real followers of the Debian and Ubuntu flavors of linux for stability and security reasons. I can't say from experience it is any better, it is just what you prefer. But if you are running a control panel that handles everything, it really won't make much difference other than how you perform many options at the command line.
CentOS is our preffered option for dedicated web servers, especially with cPanel.

"BSD is not Linux, much as Linux is not Windows." That make me chuckle a little over here before a (late) lunchtime in afew. I love seeing the various replies, I think I am going to send the buddy over here so he can learn something. I do get that its personal preference but some things just don't make sense, maybe I am getting old in my ways for what I like and all the rest just you know, are not up to par.

i use fedora but feel it is beginning to look silly using such a bleeding edge os for production boxes where stability is most important. i tend to stay 1 or 2 releases behind the most current one to give them time to iron out the bugs yet stay in the support timeframe.

we may move to ubuntu server in the future as ive heard good things about it.
