Exile Linux server admins SKYPE-group

Hey Exile Linux server administrators, I figured we'd create a Skype-group to help each other out with questions and answers etc. 

Add me: tobias.vincent.solem 

And we can set it up!

And how about to share all the discussion and linux server administration topics on the board?

What linux distro do you use?

I'm using CentOS 7 but still thinking about moving to the Fedora since it has much better perfromance :-/

Sapphire, I have Cent 7 and getting excellent performance from it. The hardware has a pretty good mitigating factor in it as well. Quad Xeon 5520, 32gb memory, 4tb storage, dedicated gig-e fiber connection, hosted in St. Louis. 

I would agree having a common Teamspeak would be slightly more appealing than Skype, there are known security issues with Skype that some of us probably would feel a bit more comfortable using another option.. why not even Google Hangouts? Functions pretty much exactly the same way Skype does, yet being Linux users/admins, I doubt any of us would have a problem with the Linux/Android friendly google ;) Can host multiple voice/video chats, can use as dedicated chat client .. no security vulnerabilities.

:) - I'm fine with using google, I just want a place where fellow Linux can chat and give each other "instant" feedback and tips and support.

iVaper: Well we are also satisfied with CentOS 7 - my friend who is working at Red Hat thinks that performance with Fedora could be eve better (newer packages) - we are going to try it in next few weeks, so  I can let you know.. We have Xeon E5-2620v2 (6/12 c/t) and it seems to be quite decent too (datacenter in Prague with 2x1 gpbs eth port).
