Poll: Are you going to try or upgrade current Linux distro to enterprise grade Ubuntu Linux?

Our very first, nixCraft poll we asked readers of this blog the question:

Do you own or recommend AMD64 based system?

Thanks to everyone, total 670 people responded to the poll. Results are as follows:

  • 89% said either they own or recommend AMD64 based system
  • 7% do not recommend it at all
  • 4% recommend Intel based system

I am planning to purchase new server based on dual AMD64 for my home/office network. It will run either Red Hat enterprise or Debian Linux. 🙂

New poll: Are you going to try or upgrade to enterprise grade Ubuntu Linux (code-named Dapper Drake)?

New Enterprise-Level Ubuntu Due This Week and our new poll question is:

Are you going to try or upgrade to enterprise grade Ubuntu Linux ?

Originally, Ubuntu Linux was introduced as an easy to use desktop Linux os. Now they are introducing enterprise version. Debian is stable and perfect choice for (besides RHEL/Suse and other Linux distros) my server requirements. Therefore, I am just wondering if you: Are you going to try or upgrade to enterprise grade Ubuntu Linux?

    Nope. Sticking with CentOS. Couldn’t be happier with it.

    CentOS is 100% RHEL clone. So it is better and stable, IMPO.

    I’d never convert my CentOS box to Ubuntu. Things are more stable (I’ve got a parallel ubuntu box at work that operates inline with the CentOS box…but only the CentOS box is used…it’s more stable).

    I already did weeks ago.

    That is cool man 🙂

    Can you explain your experience or difficulties? Currently I am using Red Hat product, which is also good but a little expensive for home and small business.

    BTW, when it will be available I will be the first to download and try out
