Aug 05 2010 Why I Use Ubuntu for web hosting
Put simply, Ubuntu is the easiest to troubleshoot and upgrade, has the best community support, has the superior package manager (apt-get), and finally and most impressively, can be deployed and ready for production in 30 minutes. Here’s how.
Total time elapsed (not including downloading and burning): 30 Minutes.
Cost: $0, 1 CDR.
Result: A blank server was converted to a fully functional, configured and live webserver, ready for production use.
In a nutshell, this is one of the main reasons I use Ubuntu for web hosting.
