    RE: Best Linux distro for optimize battery consumption (Asus EeePC)
    I have not tried any of those distros that you mentioned. Should though :-) There is one thing that I did not mention. I have found that the newer kernel versions, 3.x.x have a tendency of consuming battery life excessively. What I would do is look for a distro that uses any kernel version marked 2.6.x. They seem to go easy on mobile battery life. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS uses such a kernel. [url=http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/]ubuntu 10.04 LTS[/url]

    If you are using the later UIs like Gnome#, or Unity, you may experience a decrees in battery life. Also, the kernel in use could have extra functions that could drain it too. Stick with Gnome@, XFCE or LXDE if you like user-friendly UI.

    RE: Welcome: Why build an open cloud?
    Another benefit to using "open" cloud standards is to keep service vendors competitive. The goal is to deliver optimal results to consumers. Vendors will need the ability to adapt to users needs and using opensource is becoming the primary way of doing that because it is not a "what you see is what you get" philosophy.

    RE: Server distro question
    I find apt is very easy to use. rpm comes second. I prefer Debian based systems. Mainly Ubuntu. For servers, use Debian. It can be used with or without GUI. And will run your most basic tasks and advanced ones.
