comment Which Linux distribution is best for this network
What is so specific about this question that you need a specific operating system? This is a generic setup that needs no configuration, at least -not- by the OS. Maybe some setup you need to do in the router. Why not install Ubuntu and see how far you can get? (and then ask questions about problems you face?) All the Ubuntu versions are the same anyways and there is no =best= in this.

comment Can I choose to install more applications at an Ubuntu install
Old example: askubuntu.com/questions/47404/… (old cuz g-conf is no longer) but the art of this method is still valid.

comment Can I choose to install more applications at an Ubuntu install
That is just it: it is not 100%. Maybe 40, 50%. It is a redhat tool :( If all you want is to add and/or remove software small text file with some apt-get's in it is far easier (and still re-usable).

Yes you can BUT if that is all you want create a post install text file with a "sudo apt-get install {packages}", That is a lot easier.

comment How do I prevent me from changing /etc/hosts
Naa you want to add to a file ... that means you can always remove lives. Impossible to enforce. Only you yourself can enforce yourself (or hire someone to stand next to you with a stick ;) )

This has nothing to do with Ubuntu but with you getting a spine ;) Want you want is impossible and it totally up to your mentality.

comment Why do many software packages in Ubuntu have the letter 'g' appended?
it does not answer the why: to prevent 2 OS'es (back then gnome and kde) using the same name for different programs and to make it easy to see for us humans to what OS a package belongs to ;)

comment File permission problem on Ubuntu Lamp server
If Jos his answer is correct why is this NOT a duplicate? Hmm? @alamin72103 for instance: your method works but does need a change to groups: askubuntu.com/questions/353847/apache-permissions or askubuntu.com/questions/378351/… and many more ;)

comment Problem accessing Windows 8.1 drive from Ubuntu 15.04
" Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting)" is pretty clear advice to me. Do that please. "I had exited Windows properly with 'Shut Down'" means hibernate if bios uses "fast boot". So this is 2-fold: turn off fast boot; reboot twice and then use Ubuntu to mount the windows disk.
