Setup for my development environment
Finally I managed to find the time to complete a proper setup at home. As my server I used Ubuntu 7.04 as a base to host my Glassfish app server, Postgres and other utils. Mainly i use it as a deployment box and for my development i still use my Netbeans on my XP laptop managing all the rest through ssh/psftp over wireless access mainly. Compared to other distributions i found Ubuntu extremely easy to install and driver recognition is one of the best i have ever seen compared to other Linux distributions. Surely sudo and apt-get commands make life extremely easy to install and setup services. In conjunction with the autodeploy function on Glassfish this makes the deployment of war/ear files really easy ... anyways really happy with the environment, the plan is to soon start exposing some utilities from my linux box over the net, will keep you posted.
