Hi people! I'm new here. I have been selling, servicing and supporting PC systems since 1985. I've played with Ubuntu since version 5.04 I believe it was but was never really serious about it. At this point in my business I have scaled down to wanting to support only businesses with 10 or fewer seats and a server if they have one. With all the upheaval in the economy many of my competitors have gone under so busines for me is not bad. The only problem is I'm stuck with Windows servers in a few places and I must say I wholly dislike them! How many different screen and dialogs can they possibly come up with for something as simple as setting permissions or taking ownership of a file???!!! Not to mention a plethora of other issues. I really liked Netware until version 4.01 and had no problem supporting it. Soooooooo........ I took the plunge and installed 13.04 server on an old Dell system I had hanging around the shop. I've been beating it up pretty good for a week or so and it seems to perform beautifully. I installed Webmin because it's easy but I configured the server on the command line where I must say I feel at home to this day. Webmin is just kind of nice for quick additions especially if I'm too lazy to get up off my backside and walk over to the server. I think I'm on to something here since many of my clients don't need anything but a file server to keep data centralized, easy to backup, secure and so forth. At some point if they need a mail or web server it can be added so Ubuntu Server seems to be the way to fly. Most have balked at a server because of the cost of a Windows server and all the ongoing licensing issues and such. So, my questions are: Should I be somewhere else in the community since I really need to talk about servers but am still a beginner to Ubuntu pretty much? I have a server running on my shop network and at home and all seems well. Can it be this easy to set up? Do I dare drop 12.04 LTS into a business environment as a pure file server with little Ubuntu (Linux) experience?
