I worked for a small company that is 'Microsoft Free'. They were using Mandriva and after my good experience with Ubuntu for a desktop, converted. They also started using Ubuntu server edition (same OS, sans lots of gui stuff) for their servers they deploy at customer sites. Not that there is anything wrong with others, these just worked well for us! -----Original Message----- From: discuss-bounces at blu.org [mailto:discuss-bounces at blu.org] On Behalf Of Scott Ehrlich Sent: Sunday, April 22, 2007 4:36 PM To: discuss at blu.org Subject: Debian/Ubuntu summary I'd like to thank everyone who offered their valuable insights. The consensus is most people use Debian for server use and Ubuntu for desktop. I happened to have a copy of Ubuntu 6.10 on CD and installed it flawlessly on my home system alongside Win XP Home. After apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, I found I had a conflict, which synaptic helped to easily resolve. I then selected a software menu item which gave me to option to perform a full upgrade, which I selected. Haven't been home since to check on that. But, with the initial install done, my FAT and NTFS partitions were readily mounted and viewable. I also had easy mounts of a CF card and Sony memory stick. Very nice. I do recommend Ubuntu. I've gone through Fedora 5 and 6, along with CentOS 4.4 and 5. With each of those, I've had conflicts of one kind or another which were incredibly painful to try and resolve. Synaptic deal magical wonders. Kudos to the Ubuntu team. We'll see how the 7.04 upgrade turns out tonight... Again, thanks to all.
