    Essentially yes all linux is "unix-like" and Ubuntu is a distribution of Linux.

    Don't listen to anyone who mocks your choice in distribution. Linux is Linux. Ubuntu can host a web site just as good as Red Hat or any other distro can.

    No it's not a bad choice, that was never claimed by anyone, and as I said it's all linux. Though a general Ubuntu distro is probably gonna come with X Windows GUI software and all kinds of stuff you don't want/need to run on a server. Servers should be be as lean as possible for best performance. You will also save disk space that is better used elsewhere.

    And no one has "mocked" anyone or anything in this thread by the way. Despite the details of the reason he is doing this is the first place.
