I would suggest the (somewhat radical) concept of trying something
new that's (gasp) not Debian!  Just try FreeBSD or NetBSD, I'm
sure you'll like it.  FreeBSD would probably be better suited for
you if your x86, because IMHO ports > pkg-src (and with openprojects,
that'll be a non-issue soon)

I doubt that you'll regret it.  I talk to more people who don't
than people who do.

There is no purpose. We do whatever we do. You either blow
your brains out or get on with something.
