Linux for Servers

What are you choosing?

I am currently using AlmaLinux for my web server after the untimely death of CentOS.
My Nextcloud server is running on Ubuntu.

I’m definitely more well versed with RHEL-based but I am enjoying Ubuntu more and more.


Ubuntu for my VPS, Debian for the PI, and Ubuntu for my home server.

I keep it in the Debian family for sure. :+1::+1:

I like to use OpenSUSE as it is rock-solid stable and I really like managing my system with YaST. The packages may not be the most recent but it works for me.

openSUSE Tumbleweed (rolling release) Because I get tired of having to upgrade. I had a Ubuntu 14.04 LTS that I had to upgrade lol

I prefer to use Debian on all my servers. Because,

  • It is lightweight and it can be run on low system sources. I also like to install all necessary packages by myself, so I don’t want the OS to have unnecessary packages that I don’t want to use.

  • I think it is more stable than many other distros. I haven’t faced any serious issues so far.

  • Its package management system (apt) is easy to use.

  • It is one of the popular distros and it is easy to find solutions for issues if you face any.

I am also a ATP lover.
It’s kind of the go-to OS because a lot of the tutorials online truly are Debian and based so it makes following the tut much easier :+1::grin:
