    FreeBSD yes. What about SuSE Linux? I know it\'s usually a pain because the put system files in stupid places, but as from 7.1 they have started moving them back to the \'standard\' places.

    Yes, I like SuSE it works well and the people at SuSE are nice and I have a vested commercial interest in using SuSE.

    I think SuSe-Support will be realy nice then I know much People who use SuSe (... what you use RedHat, ohh No how can you ... use SuSe ... *g*), ok for Desktop but when they will have a Server then they want it with SuSe.
    SuSe is used from very much People in Germany (Switzerland, Austria, ...) - especially German-Providers use SuSe for there Servers. I think a Support of SuSe will bring more European-Users for WHM/CPanel|NocSoft.

    Nick, I can probably get a beta box for SuSE sorted, but unfortunately it would only be plugged into the ISDN on our office network. We\'ve got SuSE 7.0, but I\'m sure I can source 7.1 from somewhere to give it a crack.

    Debian is the official GNU Linux distro - and a pretty good one at that. Bear in mind it\'s not the \"newbie\'s\" distro of choice, but definitely a good one.

    Regards,

    Yes FreeBSD is a must. I would be overjoyed if we had FreeBSD version so I could get on something a bit more stable, and standard.

    Debian is definately a good idea.
    It even has a package management system which you could put to good use.

    Using Debian\'s apt-get/dselect system, you already have a robust, well tested upgrade system.

    .deb\'s beat the pants off .rpm\'s any day of the week.

    FreeBSD would also be a great idea. It\'s very stable, reasonably secure out of the box (lets just pretend telnetd didn\'t happen) and has great networking code.

    SuSE.. Eh. Do you really need yet another RPM based distribution?

    Vince.
