Needing a good environment for some web projects I've been putting off, I recently built out one of my spare PCs with Ubuntu 10.04. I've generally been a fan of the CentOS distributions for server purposes, but I've been so impressed with the strides Canonical has been making on the desktop, I figured they deserved a look as a server platform. The two word review is, "Good enough".

I got into a bit of unplanned primary research last night when the network interfaces on my new CentOS server started not, ummm, starting. So I thought, "no biggie", and got to the Googling. I tried "network interfaces not starting" and found the "network start" command which was illuminating but not helpful. I watched the command window as it started, first, the "Ampache" interface, then the "Main" interface. I also observed CentOS' nifty little network interface configuration app as the Ampache interface went active, and then inactive after just a few seconds. I had my first clue.
