I found my old laptop from back in high school today. I plan on wiping off WinXP which is on it at the moment and installing Linux. I do not want to use Ubuntu as I have used it in the past and for some unknown reason did not like it much. I want a distro that requires me to use the terminal/command line/ whatever its called on linux; on a fairly regular basis (to help me learn the commands) . I plan on setting up a testing "server" on it (LAMP). I mainly want to use this as a sand box so that I can gain experience in seting up and fixing problems with web servers so i can add it to my resume' . What distro should I use for this?
Edit: I'm downloading Fedora right now. It will take a while and i have to go do yard work so if any one has a better suggestion I would love to hear it.
Edit2: Posting this from Fedora. Seems to look a lot like Ubuntu so far. I was hopeing for something more command based. I was going to try slackware but could not find the download on the official site. oh well will give this a shot.
