Ubuntu Server Evaluation

Jan 30, 2010, 12:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Andrew Weber for this link. ]

"The Ubuntu server is the most innovative distribution for servers. It enables administrators to gain access to cutting edge technology and implement that with new ideas. If you are looking for the latest and greatest, this is the server option for you.

"Focus: rating 9

"The Ubuntu focus is to provide an Enterprise level server that is cutting edge in technology and innovative in ideas doing this all with an interest in simplicity. The stated goal of the Ubuntu Server Team is "working on simplifying the system administrator's life, while focusing on advanced features, rock-solid stability, and high performance"(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/).

"Source: rating 9

"Debian was the source of the Ubuntu Server but in time, the distance between these two have increased as innovation has brought new ideas and technologies to Ubuntu. The distance is also created by Canonical's determination to make two releases every year, on time no matter what. At this point Ubuntu is independent in terms of where it is going and so has no real dependency upon any other distributions and their development. Having a history rooted in Debian's huge application base fits well with the Ubuntu Server focus and has brought many experienced administrators from the Debian camp to show interest in Ubuntu."
