I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to Linux and Ubuntu. My only experience is XUbuntu, which we used in my compsci class at school. I have a little bit of experience with working with the command line and such, but I'm still pretty slow, and I often need to look up commands.
Now the problem: I've got a spare computer that I am looking to set up as a home server. I don't want to do anything too fancy, I just want to have a center hub for my house that serves as a back up for my upcoming projects, important files, etc, etc. I'm working on a massive project that I want to be able to access from several computers that are currently on a network I've set up.
My question is, would Ubuntu Server Edition be a good choice? I've been doing a little bit of research and I've found out that there isn't any kind of GUI for it. I'm not slamming the command line, but it makes it hard to experiment and figure out what to do and how to do it if you can't really see what you're doing. All I really want to do is set up a computer for a simple in house file share. Is installing Ubuntu server edition a good idea?
