Best Linux distributions for the enterprise

Filed under
Linux

There are a lot of Linux distributions out there. Out of those hundreds of variations, which are best suited for enterprise-level servers and desktops?

Since taste is such a personal thing and specific types of users are drawn to specific types of distributions, it’s almost impossible to say “Distribution A is best suited for User X” because there are too many variables to affect your opinion. When you dive into the waters of enterprise computing, however, things begin to get a little clearer. Certain distributions begin to rise to the top. I thought I’d take a moment to offer up my list of best Linux distros for large companies. This list is not based on sales numbers, Distrowatch, or marketing hype. For this list, it’s all about experience and (hopefully) a sound insight into what is to come. And I’m not going to compare feature for feature. Why? This is open source, so it’s possible to roll in whatever feature you want. Even proprietary features eventually can be reverse-engineered.

I’ll tackle both the server and the desktop. First, we’ll look at the server.
