18 years of DEBIAN starting from version 5 "Sid" until the recent 10 "Buster".
Before that done 6 years of system administration including a SCO UNIX Server and a couple of Windows Servers and dozens of workstations. The largest system was nearly 100 PC's, devices etc. at 3 locations with LAN and VPN's, Firewall and Phone via landline and VoIP.

Have fun, and maybe share your knowledge with me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Got a bit of issues with KDE and decided that a complete re-install was the best way. Used Debian 9.5 with a Netinst CD-ROM. (for simplicity and speed - I had no time to fumble and make the network and stuff work via the terminal.
