Whats New with Linux
Hi I have not used linux for a long time.
I wanted to get back into using linux, I wanted to strat with some testing. What is the best options out there right now for linux server distros. Linux OS is still freely downloaded correct? I asked because I used redhat but I went to their site and everything so far seem to want to sell me the OS with some sort of service or an evaluation of the OS.
In the past i would just download the ISOs from the ftp site directly.
Or like in the past almost any distro is ok as long as I can get the drivers and programs for the services needed on the svr?
