I do not have the hardware to make such a demonstration. Furthermore, mCOLe is a vanity distribution. It was created to fulfill a need from my audience. I had numerous requests from viewers who wanted to try Linux with my own personal settings. mCOLe is built on top of Manjaro and no changes to the core OS was made, I only added a few small features to make this unique so it should be able to do anything the parent distro is capable of.
As far as enterprise networks go, you might be better off with an enterprise-specialized Distro like RedHat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise.If said company is not willing to / cannot pay for the support of those Operating Systems, you could try the community supported versions of those:
Or one of the wide range of other server-capable Linux-based OS's:
AFAIK, companies usually strife for as much Life-time support for their systems as possible, while being as stable and unproblematic as possible.In that aspect Debian, CentOS or OpenSUSE (Leap) would be your best bets. All of those are supported for 5 years (often, the last 2 years are labeled "LTS" or "Evergreen")
Noted. Thank you for your input. The issue is that we're all volunteer thus no budget to pay for support contracts and on top of this me fumbling through tutorials on the lab to demonstrate to IT Department does not a good sales pitch make. I need to demonstrate that not only will the Linux be more stable in the long term, but existing technologies still work (e.g. Active directory or equivalent) and maintain compatibility and a workflow that's not going to have them at a terminal for three commands to reset someone's password or add a new user. My IT department has a policy of "choice" meaning that you're free to use whatever floats your boat so long as the following conditions are met:1. At least 80% uptime is maintained during your scheduled work hours2. 100% compatibility with current systems and tools at least 85% of the timeIn short if you can interoperate with the way they have the enterprise systems set up and you're just as efficient as your windows counterpart, use whatever you want.
Take a look at OpenSUSE! newbielink:https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:YaST [nonactive] is SUSE's system-control-panel. AFAIK, it can do pretty much anything a sysadmin would want to do in a network-environment in a graphical and more or less easy way.I messed with it a few times, but I cannot do more than a very small homenetwork, here
