    Why we appear to run RedHat

    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 uklinux.net.You 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….

    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

    It would, in fact, almost be funny to run IIS, just to watch MS squirm.

    Honestly, who cares what a site runs. Most of the time its interesting but not an issue. Now, if the site were a company’s “Use Debian Web Servers” site running on RedHat, that’s different as its showing unwillingness to take their own advice. Its somewhat shadier in the case of a non-wwwserver-focused news and forum site run not-for-profit by volunteers 🙂

    well i think the concern here is that if the website called debianPlanet isn’t running debian, who the hell is? well, me and thousands of others, but it’s kind of strange nonetheless. good idea to explain it.

    Why not host it on master.debian.org or something like that?
