Yes, if you add the desktop, you'd likely get to the same problem. Ultimately, Ubuntu doesn't have a way to update certain files without a restart (EG the linux kernel), so if you don't want to be bothered with that message, the choices are 1) not install updates or 2) make sure they happen when a reboot is fine (either manually or via schedule)

The Server edition allows more choices as far as installing updates. I know for sure you can set it to only install updates manually which would solve the problem. IIRC, you can also schedule it to run updates (and get reboots out of the way) at a certain time IE in the middle of the night.

Since you're using this as a server, why not just use Ubuntu Server? It is intended to be used as a server, so the options for how it deals with updates are better suited for what you're doing.

Also, if you are planning on using this, sshfs is a really nifty program that lets you mount a shared folder via scp connection. Make sure you have security really tight if you're going to be using this long-term.

This will do the trick if you want to only occasionally share files. Make sure to turn this off when you aren't using it, ssh will give full access to anyone who guesses your name and password.

comment Find files where the filename is only different by case
Why the downvote? I know this isn't a very deep question, but it was something I needed to know and something I knew would be answered by someone here.

Thanks - I knew there had to be a simple way of doing that! (For posterity, use find . instead of ls. See @RaduRădeanu's link if you care)

comment Custom wallpapers are not showing when selected
This is just a guess, but you may need to change permissions and/or ownership. Run and post ls -l from /usr/share/backgrounds (make sure to include at least 1 wallpaper that was already there to compare permissions and ownership to your company wallpaper)
