My home server is Nethserver - a CentOS/RHEL based server aimed at small to medium businesses. It replaces my Zentyal server - a Ubuntu Server based system for smaller businesses. Zentyal is a good server, but over the years, it has dropped all the stuff I liked and has focused on being an Exchange/Active Directory replacement. If that is what you want, it is a good server, but I don't need Exchange, and Samba 4 can handle the Active Directory stuff.

Nethserver is more flexible (that is, complicated and bewildering :-).


Another day, another web site

Setting up a new web site using Drupal 8, and will be themeing it with a Bootstrap subtheme. Don't know if Drupal is really the right tool to be using, but it is one I know well - especially version 7, and wanted to get on with it.

The Bootstrap subtheme I'm using uses SASS, so am learning a new syntax for style sheets, and am having a look at Google Apps Script. So a bit of new stuff.
