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.

For some reason, I get the idea that if this person tried a KDE install in Debian, he wouldn't be going on and on about the only update being the kernel. ;)

Sure, in GNOME land everything has been pretty slow to change, but there are changes. But Debian went from KDE 3.5.9 to KDE 4.4.5 in the transition from Lenny to Squeeze. That's one hell of a change, as KDE4 is a complete overhaul/rewrite. When I think about that, it really highlights the irony of the review.

Clarification: By 'this person', I am talking about the reviewer, not the creator of the original post this is in response to.
