Webservers can be useful.  Another package you can look into is dwww,
which provides web-based access to documentation, including manpages,
info, and package-specific docs, in your Debian system.  Add swish++ to
that and you've got a pretty slick "desktop search" capability.  I
typically load up a system with GNU/Linux Gazette subscriptions, RFCs,
and other docs.  Surprisingly useful.

The distinction between "desktop" and "server" is about 99.27%
