I intend to use my recently acquired Shuttle PC (1.8Ghz celeron) as a sand box application and web server for my internal network. Knowing I'll be going off of this http://www.ubuntugeek.com/linux-or-u...structure.html webpage, where would be the ideal location to install application beyond what comes with Ubuntu server. I already have Tomcat installed as well as a few others but beyond apt I may want to install my own stuff.
I'm not sure the set up can handle having a desktop running as the response time even using Xubunut (Lubuntu was bugging too) so once I have it set up I may want a extremely minimal (window manager and a basic browser) desktop. Recommendations?
When I get home I can give more details on the set up of the box.
