    I didn't think that anybody would take that seriously... especially since vi is the only editor worth using

    If you have the patience, try FreeBSD. You'll be amazed

    Re: Recommend Server O/S for old hardware

    I have tried Gentoo believe it or not didn't have the patience to actually get it running!!!

    Kedit - it works just like notepad!! lol ...damn vi/ pico - have to read the docs every time I use those!

    FreeBSD - yeah - I hear a spelling mistake in the manual necessitates a major bug release. Put in onto an old Sunspark off Ebay for a truly bombproof experience!

    ..oh yeah Installed Ubuntu Server using the LAMP setup - just gotta work out how to get at it now - 'connection refused' from WinSCP3 and Putty
