What is your favorite Linux Flavor, for Server use?

Personally, my favorite is CentOS, just above Ubuntu.

EDIT: If you have any anecdotes about why you prefer a certain flavor, please share!

Debian for servers, cause I need dat apt-get.

Im one of those crazy people who runs a ArchLinux Server


You’re insane. :stuck_out_tongue:

You’re both insane.


Or is it more insane to wait weeks for patches and fixes to be “stable”? I’ve had a much better experience on a rolling release with everyone in the community focused on a single version/instance of the OS making sure what is currently running is the best that it can be. Arch has proven itself to be extremely stable and efficient.

Why is Ubuntu #1 so far? Do people really like it???



I use LMDE and changed the desktop from Mate to LDXE. I did consider Tiny Core without a desktop.

Woo! debian for the win!!!

CentOS all the way, I have also used Ubuntu quite a lot. Never ran an Arch server though, I really ought to try that.

Glad I’m not the only crazy one running Arch.


Debian because of the stability.
