What UNIX Distribution to use
Posted on 1999-07-20
Hi, I have a quick question for you UNIX gurus!
I have worked with Linux a little but want to try UNIX. I have heard a bit about Solaris and FreeBSD, but don't know much about them.
I am going to be investing in a dedicated server sometime next month and would like to look at using UNIX instead of Linux but need to know more.
Can anyone recommend quite a good version of UNIX (not too expensive) and tell me where to get it?
Right now my priorities are not specifically security, but more price, reliability, and ease to setup DNS, Mail server, ftp, telnet.
I will be using the server for the above things and if there is a version of UNIX with a controlpanel or similar for easy setup please let me know.
I'll start at 100 points but if this becomes drawn-out I'll by all means increase them.
