Fun With Debian

What’s fun about Debian Linux?  Everything.  The amount of packages available for Debian Stable, currently Sqeeze, is astounding.  Stability is second to none, in my opinion, and uptime is measured in months and years.  In fact, in most production Debian systems I help manage, the number 1 cause of server downtime is hardware related.  In fact, I’d say that’s the only cause of downtime for quite a few production environments.  If you keep Debian patched and secure, your administration experience will be blissful.

If you’re considering building a production server, I highly suggest looking towards Debian if possible.  While there is no direct commercial sponsor offering support, there’s no gimmicky and half-baked packages that are going to break your system.  As long as you know how to configure your applications, Debian will take care of the rest.  I also find it to be a little bit snappier and resource friendly than competing distros such as Ubuntu and CentOS.
