While the anaconda installer is getting a bit long in the tooth there is no doubt that SME server just works, no frills but has all the pieces needed to do what it is intended to do. Simple and easy to administer and config, no frills, no eye candy, simple and straightforward, it just works. Modest hardware all that is needed, Red Hat compat means it will just about run on anything.

I use SME-Server for my personal purposes. I think it is quite reliable and easy to maintenance. Accessing it's services is easy. First release I used was 7.3. Primary use is my ftp-server for personal purposes. Only sad thing is that I am not nerd, so my script skills are not so good. That is why I cant install my Dropbox count in my home directory. Some reason it is installed in /root directory. It works, but it is in wrong place. Everything else is workin like it is promised. It runs also in my very old machine from 1998..I think SME is very good for many purposes.
