Today I retired the fax server from the old office.

I never wanted to update it because I was afraid things would break. Hylafax was very tricky to configure.

I had it in the back of my mind that I should probably replace it eventually, but the business was sold before that could happen.

The power was very stable at the old office, as was 32-bit Debian, so I got an impressive uptime.

I brought it home to run SerenityOS or Minix. It's i686.

@dthompson complain all you want about old packages in Debian, but their model works!

@kai For me, a graceful retirement for old reliable hardware has been netbsd...

@tychosoft I'm sure I can run Minix on it. I have no idea if there is any such thing as a boot loader for Serenity OS, however.

@kai minix is a great learning choice, too...I am sure you could.
