Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Which Linux version to use?

Posted by Stan Kaufman on
IMHO, Debian offers huge advantages through its package updating mechanisms and its amazingly helpful community (active lists with searchable archives; nice folks who will often answer questions within minutes).

People often suggest other distros for Linux newbies, but my experience is just the opposite. If you can put up with some rather arcane user interfaces (and most people who choose to use Linux at all have already decided they can), I think you're better off with Debian.

Just my $0.02 -- in a topic where everyone has dollars worth of opinions!
