My Favorite Ubuntu Distribution and Software
I run my own personal dedicated server, and I choose Ubuntu to power my server. But, I don't just use any version of Ubuntu. I use Ylmf OS, a Windows XP GUI interface Ubuntu 10.04 distribution. Yes, the Chinese wrote it, but we can all trust the Chinese, right?
Why Do I Use Ylmf OS
I used to be a n00b to Linux a few years back, and I wanted something that looked like Windows XP. You should be able to tell by now that I love Windows XP and Windows XP x64 with a passion. Everything just works unlike in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
List of Best Open Source Software for Ubuntu
- EHCP Hosting Control Panel – Automatically configures all services you'd need for a dedicated apache2 web server with VSFTPD and includes a fully functional advanced GUI control panel for easy user management, MySQL functionality, subdomains, addon domains, easy install scripts, everything you'd find in CPanel X3, and more!
- Open Game Panel – An open source game server management panel software. Allows you and your customers the ability to start, stop, restart, and modify config files for gaming servers on the fly.
- Mumble Client and Server – Great open source voice over IP client that resembles Teamspeak and has greater functionality. Install it using:
sudo apt-get install mumble-server
- FreeNX – An open source remote SSH GUI login which allows you to remote desktop with encryption without having to learn those nasty ssh commands in the terminal (yes they're simple, but I like the GUI better thanks).
More to come as I think of them.
