Before getting kicked to the curb...
We had two servers and both used the server versions of Ubuntu. The
attempt before the change to Ubuntu was Fedora. This was when Fedora was
having problems with their user community or rather I was finding it
difficult to find answers. It all ended when the Fedora server became a
porn generating zombie and I moved on to Ubuntu.
The bossman made me install desktops on the two servers because (and
these were his words...) he didn't "get" command line. As you can
imagine the boss man is a "mouse warrior" M$ Winders type.
I wonder who he has caring for those servers now?...
