Hello everyone,

I am pretty sure someone has asked this before so may i ask again.  Is
it safe to change debian sources with ubuntu?  I have a machine at home
(manila and I am in taipei) that i mainly use for mail, file and torrent
(ehem!) server and i really dont want to format it  - well its tough to
do this remotely.

I was hoping my wife to learn ubuntu from that machine and kick out
windows eventually from her desktop machine that needs to be reinstalled
at least 4 times a year :( - even if i told her refrain from using Admin
