One reason why I  use my Ubuntu-Desktop becomes Local Server whereas there is Ubuntu-Server?? Because for devoloping Local Server with Ubuntu-Desktop is easier than I have to install Ubuntu-Server. Many advantages will be gotten with make Local Server with Ubuntu-Desktop, although Ubuntu-Server is better than Ubuntu-Desktop. One of the advantages use Ubutu-Desktop becomes Local Server is we can enjoy GUI version of Ubuntu if we do it, then we installed Ubuntu-Server that there is no default GUI version of its packet. So Boring !! 😦
