Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

Considering the state of other modern distributions it is now very clear how far behind Debian is in it's current state.

I'm using Arch where you basically need to configure everything manually. Even though it is more work initially it still seems like a better alternative to using Debian's installer. This is probably because Arch documentation is so damn good I don't need an installer to do things for me.
