Check out several.....only you can decide what is best for you.
Two years ago I checked out Redhat, Mandrake, Cauldra, and SuSe.
Well for me SuSe had more of what I wanted. We now run it as our
OS on approx 35 computers. We use it for servers ( DNS, NIS, NFS,
and more than one web server). We have 3 different mySQL data
bases running raid boxes. Then there are several people like me
who have abandoned $MS totally and use it as a desktop.
The new guy I hired last month has Redhat experience and
he loved the ease of installation.
I like it because I know several people here in Ottawa who
use is, so help is just a phone call away.
Good luck on what ever you choose.
