    Re: What is the best Linux base OS or distro?

    How do you mean base OS?

    Fedora is based off Red Hat - and Ubuntu etc. is based of Debian - these can be considered 2 "base OS's" in a way. As Red Hat & Debian differ quite a bit (RPM's vs Deb's for one).

    Seeing as you're on the Ubuntu forums - I'm guessing you're interested in Ubuntu?

    For a minute there I thought I'd made a typo and said Ubuntu was Red Hat based

    I still double checked it though
