I have been trawling through pages and pages about Linux and tried a few versions, which did not encourage me greatly. Looking at Ubuntu gives me some hope.
I'm about to give Ubuntu Server Edition a trial and if I may ask some simple questions to get me started. I'd like to drop all my MS Windows server software and run Linux.
While all my network PC's still run Windows XP, what horrors am I likely to encounter.
a. What Linux software is available for email servers, currently running Mercury
b. Software for PC data and backup servers
c. Remote log on and maintenance to servers
d. Local network intranet and test web server
e. Seamless operation between current PC'c and linux
As you can see I'm a newbie at this, even after a month of trials and tribulations.
Any help or suggestions are sincerely and greatfully appreciated.
Best to all
