Which linux install for a 'fetch news' only server?

Hi,

recently got converted to eReaders, I'm making more and more friends getting one of these.

So instead of each of us fetching it's own news, i figured it'd be far better to have a server that who just fetch and format only once and send to everyone.

I could have any computer at home doing that, but I'd be more happy if I could get that done by my hosted server.

So my question is two-fold:

- what is the distro for which Calibre is the most updated? it's looks like Gentoo from the stats. Kovid, which distrib do you favor?

- is it possible to use Calibre 'headless', server side and cli only?

cheers

There are some short notes on this in the FAQ.
