    why is it convenient?

    why does cpanel says advanced users only for freebsd
    is it a tough distro to learn?

    http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPane...quirements.htm
    cpanel says...

    FreeBSD (recommended for advanced users only)
    266 MHz Processor or better (more processing power is recommend)
    64MB of RAM (1 GB recommended when hosting many accounts)
    10GB-2TB disk space (more disk space is necessary to host more domains)
    A fresh install of the RELEASE branch of a version listed below
    i386 Architecture:

    FreeBSD® 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.8, 4.10, 5.0, 5.3, 5.4, 6.0, 6.1



    x86-64/amd64 Architecture:

    FreeBSD® 5.3, 5.4, 6.0, 6.1

    FreeBSD is not a Linux distribution but is a Berkeley Software Distribution. Some may find FreeBSD less user friendly for hosting with cPanel but mainly because there are not as many people who use BSD and therefore less community support.

    I see many companies using Solaris. Many jobs in Solaris. Thinking of getting experience is Solaris just in case I need a Solaris job. Is Solaris very stable for a server?
    Is Solaris server the way to go? Anyone here have a solaris server?

    Just in the context of cPanel/WHM, be aware that cPanel/WHM is not supported on Solaris and likely does not function on Solaris as it is not a supported OS/Distro.

    RedHat Enterprise because it has better support and is worth the anual subscription.
    For a Desktop ? Mandriva ;)
