    Why we appear to run RedHat

    Site Updates
    Some nosy people noticed (took you a while though) that this webserver doesn't actually run on Debian (and not RedHat but Definite Linux). This is because we have free hosting on a vhost at can't complain about anything free, can you 🙂

    The future is bright: the future is a colocated Debian box: Debian Planet II, the all singin' all dancin' new site, will be on its own seperate box running Debian; until then dont complain....

    Why not host it on or something like that?

    I could case less than you don't run Debian. So long as its Linux I'm a happy bunny, lets not start a distro war, its completely pointless and counter productive
