Linux

A few notes about Linux and how I use it on my systems.

Distribution

My Linux distribution of choice is Debian, no contest. Everyone has a favourite distribution, and all are good in their own way, but Debian seems to be the best distribution for my needs and level of knowledge.

One of the things I try to do in my spare time is to get together as many weird types of computer as possible, stick Linux on them and get them to talk to each other and the rest of the Internet on my LAN (parts of which run at 1000Mb/s, parts at 100 and parts still at 10Mb/s). So far, I have the following machines running Debian Linux on the network:

If anyone would like any help installing onto some hardware similar to the above, why not send me a quick email and I'll see if I can be of any help to you.

Similarly, if you've got any old hardware lying around that you're wanting to get rid of, please get in touch with me and I'll do by best to put it to good use. I'll even try to arrange collection if it's at all possible, otherwise I'll get in touch with you to negotiate delivery charges. The larger challenges are especially welcome.
