List of things I'd like to be able to do with Linux and what family/distro I should play with
I have quite a bit of Windows Server 03 and 08 experience and I was wanting to make my own sandbox to do roughly the following:
-Network several computers using a linux and windows based platform
-Secure file sharing, printer sharing
-Run a Linux based server
-A 'domain' environment like Windows Server (if this exists) where I can 'push' or deploy programs to the end user desktops
-Be able to remote into the server and do something like terminal services (with addons is fine)
Any advice would be welcome!
