    You are smart :p
    Knowing the Linux world ...

    Debian is perhaps the most stable Linux distribution.

    The big distros (Ubuntu, Mint) were based on Debian initially.

    Good luck to you!

    I use Debian 7.4 Wheezy as Server for to run all my Mailservers, Domains, Web Applications and Websites. It's by far the best Linux Server available!

    I understand that very well!! From that 'Old School' myself your 'style' isn't a problem for me, just thinking about those who'll have problems to separate and understanding as it comes to programming.

    Fact is, using code tags, gives you the ability for to use even long codes/lines without the need to 'break' them or get them breaked in separate lines, which would break the code itself. The written code will keep it's needed structure, ready to be used again.
    If you install and configure a Debian Server as example, and like to install Apache2, PHP5, phpMyAdmin, FCGI, suExec, Pear, mycrypt and needed libraries etc., you could use:

    Code:
    apt-get install apache2 apache2.2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libexpat1 ssl-cert libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-common php5-gd php5-mysql php5-imap phpmyadmin php5-cli php5-cgi libapache2-mod-fcgid apache2-suexec php-pear php-auth php5-mcrypt mcrypt php5-imagick imagemagick libapache2-mod-suphp libruby libapache2-mod-ruby libapache2-mod-python php5-curl php5-intl php5-memcache php5-memcached php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl memcached
    This is just one example and contains a 1 line command code, displayed in 3 lines but if copy and paste to an text editor, it's just 1 line.

    Only important thing you'll need to know in any Forum, what BBCode are allowed to use because that could differs quite a lot, it's depend on each forum what's allowed.

    Personally I like the use of BBCode a lot and used in the right direction, it eases the writing and make the outcome easy to understand.

    i must admit one thing, my skills with respect to phpbb usage is almost close to 0. why? here is why...
    after the last post i changed my email address, since the last one is no longer valid. and since then, i was
    placed in the non-activated user category.
    I couldnt post a single character. Now after reactivating my account i am able to post again.
    so i must disagree with you on one thing. If you are a CLI user? GUI becomes a mess, and as for commands?
    *nix users like you can me can sniff out the gist, but i think i need to visit the forum often and sharpen my
    forum skills. and all the suggestions by you are noted. and its only 2-3 hours back my account was reactivated.
    phew.......... relief.

    and that LAMP install is extremely elegantly explained. I wish i had skills like you with respect to forum posting.
    I need to learn a few things from you. xD!
    it would take me 2-3 lines of explaination, but you did type the code in a simple user readable fashion. and like
    i said. i am far from phpbb code familiarity. not a forum friendly chap i must be. and for sure i will learn a few
    things here.
    thanks mate!
    thanks

    One thing that debian lacks is user friendliness.

    Their documentation is far from easy to find and understand, not mention that it's no straightforward as it should be.

    Small things like clear instructions that you should add extra and unofficial repos for a more enjoyable experience isn't necessary easy to find.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a debian fanboy, debian still my favorite distro.

    No doubt that's the reason why ubuntu and other debian derivatives are so popular, even a chimp can install ubuntu and start doing almost everything in no time in it's new bloated OS.
    The point where ubuntu fails is one of debian strongest points, stability.

    Ububuntu, don't known why, suffer the same problem that old rpm based distros was, after some time of use, with updates, installation and removal of programs, it's broken beyond repair.

    Never have a single problem that hasn't easy to repair all these years running Sid.

    First time I've tried debian, a long ago, I've gave up in favor of a easier distro, namely gentoo.
    I'm not kidding, as hard as it look, whith a pretty good documentation and awesome support forum even a noob can install and configure it.
    The only downside was the endlessly compiling times, at least with my ancient hardware.
