Denver (a.k.a. dinauz.org) is a server in an OVH Datacenter that my friends and I are renting since June 2007. We use this server running on Debian GNU/Linux for several services such as Web, Mail, DNS, Subversion hosting, and IRC.
Open Source Software
Debian GNU/Linux is one of the most used GNU/Linux distributions in the world. Very stable, well designed, quite easy to use, this is my first choice for my servers: when I want to host a very important project for me, I do it with Debian GNU/Linux.
Ubuntu is another GNU/Linux distribution, derived from Debian. It is very user friendly, and I think it is the best alternative to Microsoft Windows for those who want to use free software on their PC, without having to use the command-line all the time.
VideoLAN is a project that gave birth to the very famous VLC (VideoLAN Client). I am not a VLC developer, but some of my friends are, and I have supported the project in other ways in the past (with servers administration, for example).
