I'm new to VPS managing and I need to chose which OS to install on my VPS. I have the following alternatives:
- CentOS 5.2
- Ubuntu 9.10
- Ubuntu Server edition 8.10
- Debian 5.0 Lenny
- Debian 4.0 Etch
- Gentoo Minimal 10.0
I tried to install couple of them, I've also installed Webmin and doesn't really see any big differences among them.
Which one would you suggest for someone who is just learning (but it's going to be a working server as soon as I'm done with testing)?
Which one uses less resources (I have only 256 MB of RAM)?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
