OS for a server
What is the best OS to use for general server purposes? I plan on using it for a dedicated server for gaming/ ftp/ and storage on my lan. What would be the best OS that could handle these duties? If need be I could partition and use more then one OS.

the best Win server out atm ive found is Win2000 Advanced server.. soon (some time this year) MS will be releasing winXP server..
with a *nix OS, it really comes down to personall preference.. some like mandrake, some like redhat, some like SuSE...

I do all of that off a box running 2k pro :) It's a rock, and all works smoothly :) I use a 3rd party app for FTP, but all is smooth :wub:
