    Default Which Version of Linux is better

    Hello,

    Which version of Linux is Best, Fedora Core 3 or Fedora Core 4... I am looking for a solution which is more stable.

    I have tried Suse, but there were lot of customizations and fixes to be done.

    Please suggest the best Server OS for Zimbra.

    Also, My current configuration is

    INTEL HT 2.80 GHZ
    512 MB RAM
    80GB HDD

    Thanks

    Nazeer

    Well, I've had a lot of sucess with FC3.

    But I'd argue FC4 is better. Much more hardware support & bug fixes

    I'd suggest Redhat Enterprise linux 4 or the free version of that is CentOS (which I use). Depending on the number of users and how active they are you might also consider adding at least another 512Mb to your configuration.

    I'd second the suggestion for CentOS 4. Fedora is great, but only if you don't mind going offline every 6-12 months to upgrade. CentOS, like RHEL, has at least a 5 year maintenance cycle.

    Wink Thank you

    ok Thank you for all the suggestions, As I will limited no. of users, I guess Fedora Core 4 would be the best choice, as John suggested.

    I have 2 GB of RAM with me, So I may sacrifice 1 GB to the server

    Thanks for all the suggestion.
