I FINALLY get to set up a linux box! (there is a God after all) and I
need to impress the bean-counters.
This box will be used for python/zope/plone development (and proof of
the stack) but I need a kickstart selecting a linux flavor.
I have tons of DOS/windows experience (25+ years) but virtually none of
unix/linux. I am confident I can learn what I need to 'on the fly' but
right now the OS has to 'just work' (I can't get into compiling it, etc.)
I need to setup multiple instances of plone 3 with zeo (via buildout) as
quickly as possible and with the absolute least difficulty. I may also
be setting up:
- pound with apache (it's a quad core box)
- entransit and/or deliverance
I had looked at centOS and ubuntu server.
I was about to install ubuntu server but I just noticed that it uses
.deb instead of .rpm. Is ubuntu going to be a limitation for me later
on, or are debian versions universally available?
Or, what flavors should I avoid? (why?)
Thanks in advance for the (non)crash course.
