Went through part of the package list on the box I use for mail. Wow, a lot of cruft accumulated over the years.
I guess it has been used for a number of things, and this Debian thing is so easy to just upgrade instead of re-install, so I’ve done just that.
Why I need X and GNOME and esound on a headless box that doesn’t make noise is quite beyond me. Oh well, I guess at one stage I did have a screen hooked up and the KDE desktop backgrounds was really important.
