"The biggest selling point of Kondara over other distributions is its server capabilities. Kondara is geared toward Linux servers and provides the basics, such as sendmail, Apache, Samba, bind, NFS support, and so on. But what seems to be even bigger than this is a suite of tools Kondara uses called mph. This suite of GUI tools was written by the Kondara Project for Kondara MNU/Linux and consists of the following:

  • mph-kernel: Customizes kernel packages
  • mph-user: Handles user management
  • mph-sysv: Sets up system services
  • mph-backup: Facilitates system backup
  • mph-dns: Sets up Domain Name Service systems
  • mph-host: Sets up access control using Port Mapper
  • mph-nfs: Sets up NFS
  • mph-sendmail: Sets up sendmail
  • mph-apache: Sets up the Apache Web server
  • mph-ipfwadm: Sets up the system firewall"
"This certainly sounds like an impressive set of administrative tools. Kondara also provides the swat package for Samba management. The whole Kondara distribution is very server-centric, and the company even boasts that the kernel has been fine-tuned specifically for server environments."
