I have a brand-new box (Dell, no OS) standing on my desk waiting
installation as my main workhorse for the next few years.
What do I install? I've been running redhat for a few years, and am
reasonably comfortable with how it organises itself, so Fedora
beckons. But so does the ethical purity of Debian, and the praise
lavished in this forum and others on apt-get et alia.
I'm a perpetual newbie as a sys-admin, and am really only looking
for a good platform to run emacs on: where should I go?
