I looked a bit but didn't see any duplicate of this so my question is which free (open source) OS do you use on servers and why do you use that OS?
I have a VPS at Linode. There is a broad range of options for which OS I can put on it including both 32 and 64bit OSs. I just use it to run my small blog and for hosting random files. It's very low traffic.
I have been using 64-bit Arch Linux on my VPS and though I love the OS for general usage, for a server the constant breakage is troublesome. So I'm considering trying something new and am looking for suggestions.
