Yeah, I had it running on non Red Hat systems.  Don't see what all this 
fuss is

The only relatively complicated part is bulk moving existing mailboxes 
to Cyrus.
However, even for that there are plenty of good solutions around.

Haven't used Debian for a very long time, so I'd have to say no to this
question.  Anyhow, don't see why it would be complicated.  And no, I'm not
going to reinstall my PC just to prove you wrong ;-)
