My guess is which distro of Linux I choose will eventually matter.
I expect the same is true which open-source Asterisk GUI tools I choose will also matter.
I like Novell SUSE because they understand that if you install the OS and it can’t even turn on the screen without configuration then some developer’s priorities are inverted.
But then, I don’t even hate Microsoft for making computers usable for the majority of mankind.
Still I’d like to know if anyone has good advice about whether rLinux or any other non-commercial distro has got the backbone to run quad proc servers or some other standard grade server feature like a lights out card.
Also, if I’plan to have to network a bunch of Asterisk servers, are there any of the Asterisk GUI’s and managers and so forth that are best bets? Or is the rule that if you want control you have to build it yourself the most reliable?
So should I really expect to have to pay for SUSE Server and Asterisk Business Version to really have a substantial distributed system?
Thanks for any help you can provide that might spare me YALC (yet another learning curve)
