I've used one flavor of Linux or another since 1998, when I got  
introduced to Mandrake 2 or 3. Since it was light years better than my  
mac, I ditched it for a Linux box that later dual-booted win2k. I used  
that combo until 2002 when I got a PowerBook and have been using Macs  
full time since then. The old Linux box ran ubuntu until it died a  
couple of years ago. Since then, I've played with various distros in  
VMs, but I want to build a new machine, to use as a file/media server.
I'm familiar with Unix CLI stuff, rolled my own Apache server, but  
have been out of the Linux game for a while.
