A linux derivative
I wonder what is the best OS for a server, to be secure and fast. Please share your thoughts
Linux is the best OS for server because server needs high security and Linux has that. Windows is risky as there is more possibility of being attacked by Virus and worms. Also, linux is more safe from hackers.
Windows = Bloatware. The damn thing needs so much processing power / memory just to boot. Linux is cool because you can strip the kernel down to the bare bones and its run like the clappers.
Must say, I'm also a Mac fan, but not for servers.
I won't say Linux has high security but would say it has a very less no.(never know) of security holes. For a server OS, ofcourse a Linux distro would serve the best. The most prominent used one for servers is CentOS and for private use is Ubuntu or Fedora.
Fedora core is good for private use but it wont go well in other cases...
i have seen its use mostly in my college
I am ofcourse a Linux follower
am planning to get better in vBulletin
I think Linux because my teacher alway say it good for server
Linux for the win.
