I was planning to install the latest Ubuntu 11.10. I mostly plan to install the server edition. I am having a 4GB ram and a 500gb hdd on an intel core 2 duo processor which I want to make good use of.
Apart from hosting a site on the server , I'm not sure about what are the other advantages of installing the server edition over the desktop. I plan to use the m/c for development purposes also.
Can you kindly provide me more info on the pros and cons of using the server/desktop edition(specifically for Ubuntu 11.10) so that I could better decide which would suit my requirements before proceeding with the installation.
I did have a look at What's the difference between the server version and the desktop version? for more info, although useful, its not detailed and not specific to the Ubuntu version I'm referring to.
Thank you very much for your time.
