Yeah, name my fears. Thanks!
Seriously: I won't change a lot on that system anyway, so nevermind.
And surely I won't install my first non-debian system NOT on a computer,
which is not in my direct reach...

As a second step I'll watch out for devuan. And I'm all ears for better
choices, but until now I haven't found a better support forum in my
native tongue (german) other than debian. (Yeah, I know. But sometimes
it is easier to have this problems discussed in your navite language)
