normally I'd agree but he did say a single robust server so it would seem to fit nicely.

ESXi is also a free solution and the stability you receive from having a very minimal base system is definitely worth it.

comment does sysadmin work easily allow for doing work remotely?
@Bart Silverstrim; no but personal hygiene questions aside it is a pre-condition to working remotely, that your client/employer is ok with the idea of not seeing you or do they want to know where you are. Spose another big consideration is the security people have in knowing they can get their hands on their admin quickly in event of emergency.

comment Should I learn more about Ubuntu or Redhat , depending upon market needs
Where once that was true (RHEL/SLES) Ubuntu is gaining some serious traction as an upfront free distro that you can then go get support for, as opposed to a commercial distro from the get go (and consequently needing financing for all machines). The times they are a changing etc

comment How to maintain local Sync of files to multiple computers
Messy yes I know, but it can be done, just look at drop box/live mesh for evidence. NFS, CIFS don't give local copies as such. I wasn't aware that OpenAFS had builds for Windows and Mac but will definitely be looking down that path. The Distrib file system is the idea; i was just hoping someone had a private backend for dropbox.

comment How to maintain local Sync of files to multiple computers
Sorry should have stated it in the question but I'm also looking for something that requires minimal interaction from users and isn't so much of a "cron job thing that gets run every minute". Similar to dropbox where files are detected as changed.

comment which linux flavor is best for MySQL server
Would tend to disagree as it makes patch management / security issues more complex to deal with. Going with a standard major distributions package gives you a nice population to compare results against when something breaks.
