I understand core as opposed to apps, modules, etc.
My point is the most robust server in the world is worth squat without some useful apps, modules, whatever, now I keep using oC as an example but it’s a relevant example of what makes the server useful. oC depends on other modules, libraries, in NS’s case, apache, php, openssl, samba, etc, etc, as oC advances it’s requirements, like php as the most relevant example, NS becomes less and less of an option because it can’t support an application’s advances.
I’m sure I’m not saying anything the devs don’t understand better than I do, and for me, if I need an oC install, obviously now, I’m not going to use NS, I’ll just clone yet another one of the Ubuntu vms I built, sure, it’d be spiffy if I could use NS for an oC install, but I don’t feel it fits, not from a support standpoint.
As it is I can see that my thoughts don’t align with anyone else’s here, so I’m just going to let this go, it’s your baby.
