Has anyone actually tried Fedora? I am current running RH 9.0 as the
cheap server solution for a non-profit organization (For web, email,
DNS, Samba, SSHd, and etc). I wonder what distribution I should use in
the future so I don't have to actually pay for it? Is Fedora a good
choice? I heard people were talking about gentoo. Is that a good
choice too? I think I should start thinking about migrating my system
before RedHat discontinue its support on April. Any good suggestion?
