Re: Debian Etch or Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) LAMP Server for LTSP
Running "Ubuntu 6.06LTS", "Ubuntu 6.10", and "Etch RC1" Servers - two of each for various purposes. Before then the "Etch" servers ran "Sarge 3.1". IMHO the 'debian' (not to say that Ubuntu is not debian!) servers are preferable. Probably 'cos I know exactly what debian does and where it stores it's files, and I know it isn't going to change on me overnight. I'm converting all servers to Debian Etch as soon as it goes 'stable' ... been checking daily :). I guess there's this feeling of 'secure' about original debian i can't get from any other distro, especially when it comes to servers! They will simply run 'forever'!!!
On the other hand, all workstations and laptops are running Ubuntu 6.10 (It's simply great).
Both distros are great as servers though ... goodluck making a choice!!!

the best answer would come from the debian-edu, skoelinux or edubuntu
lists. debian-edu can be found on
irc.debian.org for realtime info or on
