RE: Helping the newbie

Thanks to everyone that has answered my questions.  My linux requirements
are pretty minimal compared to that of a desktop users.  I pretty much just
use apache, perl, php, exim, proftpd, mrtg, iptables for custom packetfilter
for wireless networks and redirection rules for authentication.  I would
tend to be more security minded than most desktop users.  Slackware is nice
and all, and it will always have a place in my heart :)  It was my first
distro, starting about 7 years ago, I have used it in production
environments for 5 years.  But everyone keeps telling apt is where it is at.
Currently I have 4 debian systems in my lab running billing software and
radius servers. 4 FreeBSD servers in production, handful or so of LEAF
routers and 7 Slackware machines running radius, DNS, Apache/PHP/Perl. Some
people say the "testing" tree is alpha some say its stable as redhat, so
which is it?  Keep in mind, I don't run X, I just run linux based servers
and packetfilters/firewalls.  Thanks for all of the help.
