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.

Like boot times, I often wonder why we care about the amount of steps in setup. Debian isn't for normal users. I like that it gives me more settings up front, and while too many details can overwhelm normal users, Debian is not for normal users.

Setup should only be done once in a blue moon, like every few years, why should we care if it has too many steps?
