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.

That wasn't a review. It was an angry, non-constructive rant.


To be fair though, if I'd have had the same experience as the author, I would've posted the exact same thing, except my rant would've had a lot more profanities in it. This is 2011, not 1995.

As for the network issue, I have learned long ago that the best thing to do is to have a USB wireless NIC handy for times when I run into a machine (mine or somebody else's) who's NIC can't be recognized by the OS. Sure, it cost me about $30, but it has more than paid for itself by saving me a lot of headaches.

I'm not a Linux user, but on Windows, I'll use my wireless USB adapter to hit driveragent.com and download drivers for the NIC in the machine, as well as all other drivers I need. I'm guessing Linux has something similar. (If it doesn't, it should.) Not being able to get online because the network card isn't recognized is not a problem we need to deal with anymore.
