Haha, you make me chuckle killabyte.

Someone earlier in this thread said the answer. An Enterprise Operating System (*Nix, Windows, or otherwise) is an OS backed by some organization. In an enterprise, you have to have support...period. Without support, most businesses won't touch a piece of software, or at least they shouldn't. RHEL and SLES are the two main Linux enterprise OS, with Ubuntu being the third. Fedora and CentOS are both built from RHEL, which is why they are often used. Debian is another popular choice in the enterprise, due to having independent consultants for paid support.

Community support is great and all, but when your multi-million dollar is down and you're waiting for a response from some kid on a forum, you are probably going to loose your job.

I would recommend lubuntu. Probably better than Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Mint. The next distro I wanna try.

For a more advanced perspective there's Archbang. For ultimate stability there's Debian, that one's the base for Ubuntu and used a lot in Apache servers and enterprises. Fedora (Red Hat community edition) seems interesting too, I never got around to look at it really since Ubuntu/Archbang always did it for me.

Your opinion is probably one of the few that I respect on here.

was it ever really said the OP wanted "Enterprise" anyway? I thought they just wanted an Linux OS with some server managing tools. Squid and Snort work with Sabayon...I don't know about ownCloud though I assume it will. It can pretty much use anything since it is Gentoo with a face lift.

If you want support...you need to go SUSE...heh, or Microsoft. You pay for it though. Anything else will be very lack luster support as it will likely not be the developers and just some one that happens to know a lot about the OS and does support on the side. Though perhaps I've just had bad luck as i've gotten help from forums that was much better and faster. Though the support I've gotten on Linux has been on things like Zimbra and Oracle...I've never gone looking for support on a OS.

The second sentence in the OPs first post says this:
I was wonder what is a good Linux distro for beginners that are enterprise worthy?

Thus, we talk about Linux distros that are worthy enough to be in the Enterprise. Enterprise software means support, which limits the choice to the big three (RHEL, SLES, Ubuntu), with a few runners right behind it because they fork from the same kernel (Fedora, Debian, CentOS, etc).

EDIT:
From OwnCloud.org...
"OwnCloud provides ready-to-deploy packages for popular Linux distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, RedHat Enterprise Linux, CentOS and openSUSE."

All the major distros are listed there (If it works on OpenSUSE, it will work on SLES). However when in doubt, build from source. It's not that hard.

Yes, OP said enterprise. Something that is used in a enterprise environment or at least close to it.

Yes, OP said enterprise. Something that is used in a enterprise environment or at least close to it. I do have legal access to Windows Server 2003, WS 2008, and WS 2012 (Through my University's Computer Info. Systems department. Which is awesome by the way biggrin.gif) . Since hardware is fairly old I was going to just go with Linux. How ever I will be having either Dual Boot Linux/WS 2008 or just have plain WS 2008 on maybe one or two servers. Sorry I haven't posted on this thread, being a bad OP right here. But heck really good conversation here thou! thumb.gif
