Need a Reliable Server?

Netcraft’s latest report gives some clues. The world’s most demanding hosting companies run GNU/Linux. Of the top 42 most reliable hosting companies,

  • 2 run F5 Big IP,
  • 5 run FreeBSD,
  • 8 run that other OS, and
  • 15 run GNU/Linux.

I run Debian GNU/Linux. It’s fast and easy to manage. You don’t have to be a big guy to use it. It’s a free download and the licence comes along giving you permission to use, examine, modify and distribute the code. What could be better for your IT? If you are still running that other OS, you can download the installer and run it right now. What could be easier? Debian GNU/Linux works on desktops, notebooks, and servers. What could be more flexible?
