Re: [PhillyOnRails] Which Linux distro?

I have noticed, through a friend at work, that the RAID support isn't bleeding edge for some very new machines (but who is really). One Dell they had received required a special package for a brand new RAID controller. Other then that I'd totally agree with you.

FWIW, I've run production systems on Redhat 9, RHEL4/5, Solaris 9,
Ubuntu 6, and Ubuntu 7. Ubuntu gets in the way the least. There's a
special server image with RAID support and without X, etc.; dunno if
anyone's mentioned that.

I thought the whole point of Gentoo was just a glorified LFS with a

off about Gentoo was I'd be 12hours deep into a install and forgot
why I was building it in the first place.

Colors are everywhere in gentoo right out of the gate.  ls, grep,
bootup, emerge (ports clone).  Everywhere.  It's a ridiculously rich
CLI before you even do any kind of configuration.

I do however, wish there were some easy way to get a really base
system (boot loader, stock kernel, shell and basic utils, sshd) up
and running in like 5 minutes then work from there.

But on a VPS that exists in the form of a fresh xen image.

There might be something out there.  I just haven't looked too hard.
