I’m considering switching some of my server applications to Alpine Linux. Here’s why. For years I’ve been using Ubuntu server for my Linux server applications. There isn’t really a need to move to something else, more of a desire to learn new things and improve my system administration. I’d like to explore Red Hat Linux based server administration, like CentOS, because it is frequently used in business settings. I am also exploring options to use with older hardware and my own internal use.
