  • So you've looked into Debian. That's the spirit, I'd say.

    It seems to be a common pattern that other-distro-people sooner or later decide to migrate to Debian (or at least have a look into it). Debian appears to be a point of no return, at least as far as Linux is concerned (and rightly so).

    Once you have a fully configured Debian box there's not much else to discover about Linux (other than Linux from scratch perhaps). The only plausible thing to do afterwards is checking out some other UNIX-flavors. I did so with FreeBSD which is quite impressive really (and also a little more geekish than Linux nowadays;-).
    • Well, it's probably me nothing having the time (and the motivation) to look into it further right now. I'll probably end up using it for a few weeks and decide then if I'll jump back. I'm sure that I'll eventually can like it, it's just that there are quite a few things different than before. Ofcourse, it took me to time to get used to RH :))

      We'll see how I end up.
    • Heh, debian was definitely "no return" for me - I installed it, spent two weeks getting annoyed by things that worked fine in RedHat and never returned to it.

      Of course, at home, I'm still using FreeBSD, which I find to be better than both. But I need good ldap and PAM integration at work.
