Application is to serve small web (port 80) applets that will take input and feed it out over serial lines. Need to load Apache (unless there’s a lighter server)
What distro would anyone care to recommend?


You could also use Node.js, as a “web server”, but I am not sure if it would be a better fit for your application, and how it would compare to Apache concerning size. Apache is rather large though.

I need to look at Node.js

I probably should have linked this in my first post, but something good to watch would be this.

For what it is worth, Node.js is faster than most if not all scripting languages. IN some cases it will blow python out of the water performance wise.
