Title: What Flavor of Linux?
Post by: webinfoguy25 on July 04, 2014, 05:26:17 PM
Ok so I made a Fedora Live CD and its version 20.  I went to install and its being crazy trying to use my entire ntsf partition.  How do you mount that ?  I tried root (/) and that said i needed more than 2 gigs of space for install which is total bs for anything linux.  Ok so i upped the ntsf to 30 gb and it still said i didn't have enough space to install?WTF?

So I dont care for Ubuntu what version of Linux do you guys use and why?  Give me alink to the download if you can.

We've gone all Red Hat, although we have some CentOS installs where we can be cheaper.

But personally, when I have something I want good and stable, I use http://www.freebsd.org.

any flavor that comes with yum is handy as it saves time. i used to compile everything from scratch, but yum really isn't all that bad.
i also agree on fbsd, i use it for mission critical servers i.e. that handle licensing
