In ancient times I used Redhat, it was not really a big change.

But keep in mind that Debian is more "mature" ... read they have sometimes have
older version of programs.
So it is definitely not bleeding edge ;)

I use it mostly for headless systems.

For ones where you want to have a GUI you can try the debian based Ubuntu.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
