Operating system

For the OS I chose CentOS 5.1 x86_64 (at this moment the latest version) for several reasons:

  1. I've been using Redhat and Fedora for almost everything for about 10 years, so I know my way around the OS and the settings.
  2. Well supported. I wanted a high probability that software like VMware Server, Zimbra and Scalix work 'out of the box'.
  3. I wanted a 'stable' distribution for which I could expect some community support for several years.
  4. I wanted 64bit if the hardware supported it.

 

Stuff I'm considering to install
