    Them: I like to use Ubuntu as a server.

    Me: get the fuck out you god damned sicko!

    Ubuntu is not a server, it's barely Linux at this point.

    @matt-jd the only thing you can do with Ubuntu, install a better distro.

    He learnt ls cat mkdir etc .

    @CuberDude depends on what you want to do.

    Enterprise? rhel
    Homebrew? Fedora, Rocky, Debian
    Anything else? OpenSUSE/SUSE

    Every distro serves one purpose or the other . It's all a about personal choice .

    In any normal Linux, i would install konsole, tmux, vim, git and a bunch of other programs, apply my config files to the home directory and work the same way.

    I make 90% in a terminal emulator anyway and 90% in that is the same on most distros.

    I don't have much reasons to use one distro over the other on a desktop. Except Gentoo which would be nice to configure a special Linux version for embedded systems, but then i would need a newer faster computer to reduce compile time.

    We're literally running headless ubuntu-server servers for all our dev environments.

    If you use it for work you still get to learn stuff like configurations of ssh, apache, docker maybe, bunch of stuff really

    At the very least if someone has an interest in any linux distro there's a good chance they are more tech oriented an curious.

    I wouldn't regard someone less just because they use ubuntu over say arch...

    @ilechuks73 CentOS is dead

    @Ubbe redhat meets Enterprise needs where the only time you need to use a package outside of their repos is for compliance.

    I'd also like to add, fuck IBM and fuck redhat's license policies. Greedy bastards.

    @sariel OpenSuse is basically the beta testbed for their enterprise version - similarly to Fedora at Redhat. I wouldn't use that for anything other than testing, e.g. for making sure that my existing Linux software will work with future versions of their main distros.

    Debian is a mixed bag, too - it's not out of idiocy that Ubuntu uses a mixture of stable and testing. Stable is excellent for servers, but very outdated and often doesn't even get bug fixes unless these are security relevant. Testing can have a really bad lag even with stability fixes.

    @Fast-Nop that's pretty much what I meant with any SUSE system. I haven't ever ran into a SUSE system in the wild and haven't touched one since about 2008.

    It's ultra rare to even need it IMO.

    CentOS used to be my go-to if rhel wasn't an option, but since they went full retard I'm looking more at Rocky or Debian.

    Debian because of the merger between IBM and RH. It's basically Ubuntu without all the Cononical bullshit.

    Also, future readers, take this opinion with a grain of salt and consult your operations friends. If you work in the Enterprise, use an enterprise OS to ensure that you're within compliance scope.

    @sariel I had Suse from 2001 to 2009 on my desktop. What killed it was them transitioning to KDE4 long before KDE4 was even close to be production ready.

    And yeah, Debian for servers, but it does have its drawbacks on desktop, in particular if your hardware isn't ancient. Debian's website alone is so bad that you have to use a search engine to even find relevant ISOs for "testing".

    On the upside, I checked out Debian testing with kernel 5.10 and Cinnamon once I found the ISO. It did boot up on my 4700U based laptop, so that was something - but "testing" isn't what I'd want to use, and "stable" didn't boot up at all because the hardware is too new.

    @Fast-Nop I'm actually transitioning desktop to use arch.

    But that's because I hate myself.

    Will probably migrate all my home stuff to Debian eventually though.

    To be honest, I'd more concerned by a resume that only has Microsoft tech...
    and it is even worse if it's for an IT or devOps job.
