OpenSuse Linux: A different distribution at source (Suse Linux), use of rpm packages (with fewer repositories and incompatible with Ubuntu Linux dpkg packages), and whose main objective is to be a "testing ground" for its paid version / professional, SUSE enterprise Linux.
For security purposes, we tested Kali Linux as well, but found that, for our purposes, Kali Linux did not offer enough advantages. Our first candidate was Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but we wanted to stick to completely open source software.
For end users, Windows Server would have been the most familiar, but we were not able to afford it and most of the users of the software we rely upon most, Moodle, use some Linux distribution, so we stuck with Ubuntu Linux. We were also not able to afford the licensing for Windows and were not able to plan for any price increases or changes in licensing that may come along. We found Linux versions most flexible and useful for the plans we have made.
