It pains me greatly to admit this. I hate Macs *much* more than Windows.

Doesn't pain me at all. I hate all Apple products these days and Apple corporate (communist, consumer, I'm entitled, dumb as a box of rocks but I like to pretend I'm not, confidence scam digital eco-system). Sadly people are better off with Windows, unless you just want a phone for selfies and dirty videos.

Bohdi Linux with Moksha/Enlightenment could do it (video in the term) if I remember correctly.

Saw John Cage in 1967 or 68. He had a covered cake pan full of cecropia moths which he uncovered on stage and attempted to toss the moths into the air. Unfortunately the moths had become lethargic and simply fell to the stage floor with quiet plops. He chuckled a little, probably at the audience reaction, and then went back to the piano randomly plunking the keyboard.

upgrade my rackservers

Reading through the OP's original post is confusing to me. At first the question and the praxis seem upside down i/e better to install the server first then spin up a DE after the server is configured, not the other way around. The systemd complaints seem irrelevant to me as well since we are addressing a server installation. The desktop is inconsequential if the server is installed and configured first. Anyway, since there is an existing Linux system on the server in question perhaps Debian is a better choice to begin with for simplicities sake, but it may be worth reading through the links below first. … 03.en.html

The OP's question is a bit ill defined in that there is no mention of the server's purpose, which also bears on the subject of user name configuration in some cases. I wish the OP only good luck, but it almost sounds like the water is little deeper than he thought it would be. Times have changed a bit.

The human meta-narrative taken as a whole (science, mathematics, religion, philosophy) is simply an obituary of a thought written in a nonsense language. Love seems always to be the dialect we cannot master.
