Just curious on peoples opinions.
I used to run Gentoo as it was very fast however, it seemed to break a lot or had ebuild issues. So Ive therefore moved to trying a variety of distros for my little home server.
Im testing Ubuntu server at the moment however compared to Debian it feels really sluggish. Ive recently moved over from a dual core pentium to a athlon x2 with 4gig ddr2 800. I know that Ubuntu is based on Debian however it does feel quite a bit slower than debs.
Do others find Ubuntu a bit slow?
Do you use any other distros that could be recommended for use as a headless file server?
Im very tempted to go back to Debian. Although I am open to ideas for another distro. My main uses for the server at the moment are;- samba/afp, sabnzbd and http.
