    I voted Fedora Release 8 or 9

    It is Release 6 actually but that wasn't a poll option

    As far as I know, it uses a Linux based server, although I haven't checked the exact Linux OS in use or asked my host.

    My personal on runs on Centos 5. I recommend that to our clients also. Vbulletin seems to work better on it.

    True, but even a customised version of Ubuntu server would not sit well for me. The only Linux distro I would consider for a server would be Debian. It seems to be one of the few that truly takes a stand on stability and correctness.

    Without getting into a religious war I also have issues with the GPL and associated licenses, another reason I'm in favour of OpenBSD which attempts to use code with the BSD license whenever possible.

    I would definitely agree with B. With the amount of auditing they do on the code, it's no suprise.

    I'm definitely an OpenBSD fan, even though I am a Linux user. The excellent work on OpenSSH and the overall idea of security is very important. So, while I might not exactly like some of the comments de Raadt says, I have to commend him on having and producing such an excellent work.

    B) OpenBSD is one of, if not the most secure operating systems available (with the default install)
    C) OpenBSD has some of the best documentation available for it in terms of man pages and the like
    D) It offers fantastic features for firewall redundancy built in
    E) Predictable release cycle
    F) The Apache supplied with OpenBSD is chrooted by default

    probably a few more but I can't think of them at the moment.

    Not worth it and I'm an avid Mac fan. Just install one of the BSDs (Open, Free or Net) and you'll have basically the same features for free.

    How come?
