Re: Linux Distribution Recomendation

I like Slackware myself ( http://www.slackware.com/ ).  It is as close to pure
Linux as you can get.  It's getting easier to manage also.  As far as security
goes, that depends largely on the admin but, Slackware requires far fewer
patches and upgrades than more well known varients because they don't rewrite
everything before releasing it.

Good luck.

Subject: Linux Distribution Recomendation

Hello list,
I would like to have recommendation for a Linux Distribution 
satisfying the following: a- Secure enough for Buisness applications 
( i.e. Mail Server) b- Kind of Easy to manage and use. c- Available 
Updates maintained by the production company. Any help will be very 
much appreciated Best Regards, Kareem Mahgoub
