    Post Mandrake gaining ground as webserver

    Use of the Mandrake Linux Apache advanced extranet server has increased dramatically recent according to this article at http://linuxtoday.com/news_story.php...02-26-PR-MD-NT
    Its thought that Mandrake, which people always considered a good version of your desktop, is gaining a lot of ground as use as a server. One such server running the Mandrake Linux Apache Advanced Extranet server is http://www.badconnections.net (shameless plug).

    That is excellent. I was so close to purchasing another Linux distro so I could set up my small network, but now I can use my Mandrake OS. Good news, good news.

    Mandrake Linux Servers Invade the Internet
    According to recent Netcraft surveys, the use of MandrakeSoft's
    Advanced Extranet Web Server has risen significantly, and is now the
    eleventh most widely used web server in the world. The number of
    publicly accessible Apache Advanced Extranet Servers grew by 150%
    during the past 12 months, and by 66% during the last 6 months alone
    (176% on a yearly basis). For comparison purposes, the total number of
    web servers grew by 29% during the past 12 months and only by 3.6%
    during the last 6 months.

    The Mandrake Linux "Advanced Extranet Server" is an
    enhanced/high-performance version of the famous Apache web server. It
    is packaged exclusively by MandrakeSoft as a turn-key solution -- very
    easy to install and configure, and includes the most popular modules
    such as mod_php, mod_perl, mod_mysql, mod_ssl, and many others.

    It's great to see that Mandrake is finally being discovered as an ideal
    distribution for servers as well as the desktop. Read the complete
    announcement here:

    I currently use it for my test server which wwill hopefully become fully public when i get ADSL.

    Works excellent straight out of the box.

    Talking MANDRAKE RULES!!!

    I've been using Madrake 8.1 with the 2.5.15 kernel, and I use it for a http and ftp server for a while so far. I'm glad ppl are waking up, and realizing there are better alternatives than M$.
