This would all depend on what you need. As for me, I am running Fedora
Core 1 on our server without an problems so far. It's running the
- DHCP Server
- Samba File Server
- SMTP and POP3
- MySQL, Apache, PHP for Groupware
- iptables for firewall and NAT.
Hardware it's running on is generic stuff. No name brand servers here.
With 3 IDE 40gb HDD configured as RAID5 array. We're cheap. But it runs
great. Of course, load is hardly ever maximized (maybe 50% at most).
Again, stability, I guess, would depend on what you use the server for.
Generally, Fedora is stable enough as a server. But I hear it's a pain
for SMP machines.
