Slackware by far for everything, but if you are a fan of rpm, then stick with SuSE smile.gif

SuSE 9 Professional can handle all.
Windows = Mediocrity
Mac = Innovation
Linux = Individuality
Unix = Stability

Go with SuSE,

Linux is the kernel. The entire system is called GNU/Linux.

From being able and having used both I would say that Suse 9.0 Pro is great it is stable and very easy to use.  But you also have to remember that easy to use also means that its sometimes is so simple that you can't figure out the simplest shit with it.  Suse uses RPM which I have had many many problems that have been going through and all.  I like Slackware because you have to use slackpacks (which hold all nessassary dependancies that are in the package for you.) or compile the program yourself at that point.  Suse is made to use RPM's which means dependancy hell sometimes.  I would personally say Slackware is by far the better of the two from using Suse for about 3 month and Slackware for about 7 months something along the Lines of that.  I have been in #suse and #slackware on irc.freenode.net and as help #suse is by far the best for help support in a channel for the Distro between the two.  Just my opinion

Slackware is the closes distro to unix. Its a GREAT distro for servers and the like. And is probably still my fav for servers.

For what you are after slackware does fit the picture much better than suse, although having said that suse will also be able to do those tasks.

The reasions I seleted slackware as follows.
Does not have extra rubbish installed, which is what you want for a server.
Does have a basic fast core. There are not lots of extra programs running that you dont need.
Comes with less gui based tools, again which is something you want as gui tools and servers dont mix real well. Just look at windows.

Thats my 2Cents
