I had linux on my computer (RedHat and then Mandrake) since I started grad school almost five years ago. Unfortunately, I haven't had a computer for the last two years. I bought my fiancee a laptop for the holidays, so I got this machine. After investigating the available distros, I was sold on Debian after reading this article on Distro Watch.

Now I'm enjoying the fun and excitement of having a proper server again. Unfortunately, the first week has been more excitement than I would have liked, but I'm optimistic.
