I’m switching my home server from Red Hat to Debian in hopes that some of the OpenGL stuff I’m trying to compile for my art and machine experiments goes smoother.

I use my server to do rsync’s from my office machine (so I can back up files, have access to all my repository from whereever I’m working, etc), I also have an SMTP server (running on a custom port, thank you) so that I don’t get annoyed with “relaying denied.”

Debian install is at least an order of magnitude more difficult than Red Hat.

Wish me luck.
