Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: cheap Dell servers for next 4 days
But I've since heard that some of Dell's low-end servers have quirky on-board hardware that is not supported by some Linux distributions -- Debian in particular. Does anyone know if the video and NIC chips on the motherboard are supported by the latest Debian release?
I haven't heard anything about lack of support on the Dell machines, especially since Dell gives you the option of having Red Hat pre-installed. I don't think they would have a separate configuration for Windows and Linux, but that's a possibility.
