    Ubuntu 5.1 with server shite added and a 2 drive RAID 1 array for files/svn. Serving up Subversion, Samba, Apache and Tomcat. Need to setup SSH tunneling to the outside. Gnome is my friend. All on a 2GHZ celeron with 512 megs of ram.

    Don't run linux anymore. I gave my laptop to my dad. If I get another one, it would most likely be running Gentoo w/ XFCE4.

    I can't abide Linux as my PC for spreadsheets and word processing. I use Pages and Excel on OS X for that. And GIMP is hardly a substitute for Photoshop, so I use my Mac to do that, often through VNC on my Linux box's 19" LCD.

    Ubuntu 5.10 here (kernel 2.6.12-10). I've really been using Ubuntu on my desktop for about a year and half now (it was SuSE before that, and Mandrake before that), and it just keeps getting better. It's low-maintenance and works great. We've had very good luck with it on my GF's laptop too.

    I've been using OpenBox as my WM at home and at school lately. I love the speed.

    The other day I typed "echo hi|mail [email protected]" and it said: mail: no such filename. Ubuntu is annoying in that its so minimalist sometimes.

    I built a file server at work for the sole purpose of movie sharing. :naughty: It's running Ubuntu 5.10 w/ Samba, Apache, PHP, and MySQL with no GUI.

    Almost makes me want to start up another server at home. :hsugh:

    Yes, it's definitely intended to be a desktop OS for the masses, not a *nix for *nix enthusiasts. Average Joe Windows user doesn't use the mail command, just like he doesn't use gcc, or kernel sources. Therefore, those things aren't included with Ubuntu by default. It's irritating as fuck the first time you go to build something and it says gcc: command not found, but it does make sense if you consider their target market. Also, with apt, it's easy to install whatever you need.

    Overall, I still prefer it to the various other distros I've used. I think when I buy a new machine, I'll probably do a server install of Ubuntu, then install just the things I actually use. That way I don't have a bunch of Gnome trash cluttering up my machine.

    I used Automatix before it was Automatix (it was EasyUbuntu before), and I did use Automatix on my GF's laptop. I love it. It does everything, sets up your apt sources, installs and configures things properly and looks nice doing it. Very hot.

    I like OpenBox better than flux or blackbox. It doesn't have that annoying taskbar thingy, and its config files are really freakin easy to use. It also has a nice graphical config tool called obconf. It's extremely minimalist. When I login, it starts instantly - no waiting at all. It does exactly what a WM should do IMO - manage windows and stay out of my way otherwise.

    For servers in a production environment, we'll be building from scratch, or using a very trimmed down SuSE. The thing about apt-get on Ubuntu is... sudo apt-get install mail doesn't work and its annoying to try to find what package that would be contained in.

    Mail is the command line utility for your mail transport agent. Usually sendmail.
