Last weekend I stood up another Linux server based on a small desktop computer.  Way back in the early 1990's I cut my teeth on Linux using a HP Vectra that the company that I worked for at the time was throwing out.  I had just gotten a DSL connection in my home and a co-worker had convinced to install Linux and learn how to use it.  I eventually built a home network and firewall on the server and kept it up for one year without any downtime or rebooting.
