Debian and its clones eWeek has reviewed Debian 5.0, and concludes: "Version 5 of the Debian GNU/Linux open-source operating system offers the same top management tools and processor support that previous versions of the Linux operating system have. There also are a host of updates to open-source components, and the Linux distribution is still a great fit for servers and a solid desktop choice. However, the top reason for upgrading from version 4 may be the relatively short three-year security fix window, less than the coverage time offered with Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux-derived CentOS."

One last (rather cosmetic) thing with the installer remains: At installation, there is no easy selection between KDE, GNOME, XFCE, ... as main desktop environment. Only "Desktop", and then you get GNOME without further question.
I think, I will add this as a feature request for the next release.


I used DVD 1, advanced options,and it gave me a choice between GNOME (default), KDE, Xfce, LXDE.
