I've been told by many that CentOS is the best Linux distro to use for hosting but i was also told that Debian is better.
Which should i use? I want one that uses less resources for the OS (so my game servers can get the best performance), but also be easy to manage, update, etc.
The box it will be installed on will likely be 2x Xeon Quad cores with 16GB of ramDedicated Servers operating systemGame Server Box
Thanks for this interesting point,I know two best linux distro for gameing that is gentoo and puppy linux 5.2.5 it is extremely good at scaling, and makes a good choice for older hardware.
IMO CentOS is a better option to go with. Its RHEL based operating system, easy to operate, many repositories available, many applications are available for CentOS free of cost.
