    Question [SOLVED] Best Free Server Distro

    Hi. I am going to set up a server and I was wondering what distro is the best for a server? I will have apache with php support and possibility a printer server too. Also, it must be free. Thanks.

    If its debian, stick with it as debian is great as a server... solid as hell.
    BSD is great on servers too, in fact more stable then linux.

    Ubuntu server like Ubuntu Desktop are based on Debian Linux so you should feel right at home for the most part.

    yes it is, BSD and linux are sort of like cousins but are miles apart from oneanother.
    But most commands you know in linux will probably work in BSD, they share a lot of similarities.
