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

Posted on in Categories Linux last updated May 30, 2006

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?

  1. 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

    Thanks

  2. 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).
