    Suse Linux

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this but I have a question that you guys will be able to answer.

    Does Suse Linux make a decent web server? Or am I better off using a different distro?

    Suse is an excellent server OS

    YAST is great tool to manage the server

    Microsoft just invested $240 million in it, which arguably shows the potential seen it by many in the industry.

    My $0.02 --- Suse is run more profoundly in europe than usa - it is also (from my limited understanding does - with default configurations run as a web server quite differently then OS's like red hat - example the server sets its files in /opt vs /home (here is where my limited understanding goes grey. It probably runs great but resources on how it runs, in English I found are few. Note I looked into it back in the days of 7.3 things may have changed and probably have alot since the Novell takeover

    SuSE

    I have setup many SuSE web servers, and they perform just as well as a properly configured Redhat, Debian, CentOS, etc..

    It is more a matter of preference.
