    You would need Ubuntu server; are you looking at the Community or Network Edition of Zimbra ? As a high majority of the documentation is written for RedHat you may wish to use CentOS. A lot of us already do

    I'm not familiar with CentOS. Is it the same as Red Hat Enterprise Linux? thank you for the clarification on this.

    Hello tolmarc,
    Short answer is: Yes

    Quote: Taken from CentOS site www.centos.org - The Community ENTerprise Operating System
    CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor. CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.) CentOS is free.
    Cheers,
    William

    Thank you for the answer. I've dont some reading and understood what centos is.

    I just don't want anything that is complex to manage. Just a simple system for 10 users.

    You cannot get much simpler than CentOS; and as I said most of the documents are tailored towards RHEL.

    If management complexity is a concern, then for a 10-user install you could consider a hosted Zimbra install.
