Thats nice, because for some Month I have selled a AMD K6/200 as Server 
and 8 Am486dx2/66 to a Kindergarden and ALL with Debian/GNU-Linux 2.1r3. 

The Childern love the Computer and it is the first touch with it. 
It was a private Kindergarden and they have not enough money for the Big 
Blown MS-Crap for around 14.000 US$ (30.000 DM). 

I have a fvwm95 at startup and installed around 80 Linux-Games, 
a Graphic Program and a easy to use Wordprocessor.

The Childern don't care about the english language in the Windows 
becaus they know how to klick ;-))

I sugest you to try Communicator 6.0  ;-))

Not only UNIX-Servers because I know some LINUX-Server 
which have an uptime of more then 700 days already...
