Ubuntu Server Edition: Canonical’s Big Challenge

,----[ Quote ]
| But keep your expectations for Ubuntu Server Edition under control. Building 
| out that business is going to take years — rather than months. 


Move Over Fedora. Now There's Something Leaner.

| No it's not Sizzlean (see below). It's Ubuntu Server. I have been running 
| Fedora on the web server in my basement (which runs this site, BTW) for years 
| and years. The last time I upgraded was when Fedora Core 5 was released and 
| it has run that way ever since.   



Ubuntu Server receives positive reviews

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu isn’t just for desktops. Behind the scenes, corporate IT managers have
| put Ubuntu to work on servers. Don’t believe me? Well, I can name names. I
| can also tell you up front that Ubuntu Server gets high marks for its
| corporate support; easy backups, installs and upgrades; documentation, and
| more.
| So I set out to find some IT pros who could talk about Ubuntu Server, which
| wasn’t hard. I just asked, “Who’s using Ubuntu?”  in a
| SearchEnterpriseLinux.com newsletter. Here are some respondents’ views of
| Ubuntu Server, both positive and not-so-positive.



Review of Ubuntu 7.04 Server on Old Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 7.04 Server Edition provides a very easy way to get a LAMP server up
| and running quickly. The lack of SSH access as standard seemed strange for a
| distro focussed on ease of installation, but comes from the principle that
| the less daemons there are running, the less daemons there are to hack, which
| is understandable. Of course, it is then up to the user to configure Apache,
| MySQL and PHP, which can be quite time consuming. I think that Ubuntu Server
| is best viewed as a shortcut to a fully rigged server rather than an all in
| one solution.
