Does anyone know of a good linux distrobution for beginners, or should I just use freenas?


I made a home server out of scrap pc parts, which is currently using windows 10 pro. However everywhere I look about servers it always says that "if you use windows you're leaving performance on the table", and it seems that learning linux is helpful down the road.

    Depends on what you want to do with the server, I would suggest Unraid or FreeNAS if you need a storage server. If your just trying to learn Linux, you should try using Linux Mint or Ubuntu.....
