Quote from: Vladik on October 03, 2013, 02:30:14 amMy primary goal is to run cubie as a server with Apache running on it [PHP, MySQL] so I'm quite sure I don't need desktop packages there. Maybe later I will try to build some kind of NAS on top of it but that's open.
Quote from: Vladik on October 03, 2013, 02:30:14 amWould you guys vote for Lubuntu or ArchLinux? Do you know which of them has bigger community for example?
Quote from: Vladik on October 03, 2013, 02:30:14 amIn case I would need some package which is not in cubie distribution, is some specific distribution easier for porting?

Quote from: vierax on October 05, 2013, 04:16:15 pmthat's true Debian is out of dated (I use it in desktop and sometimes it's a pain) but as I said backports give you fresher softs and this OS is one of the stablest.
Quote from: vierax on October 05, 2013, 04:16:15 pmIf you know Ubuntu, you can use it but you have to expect some bugs.
Quote from: cubee-noob on October 06, 2013, 02:31:13 amboth (l)ubuntu and debian have a severe advantage over other distributions: apt-get.
Quote from: redneck on October 16, 2013, 08:08:25 pm- On the other hand - Arch is always a perfect solution for a server (simple, fast). However people still do have a stereotype about Arch as distro with an unstable software. (not really, anymore).
