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.

My experience Debian is similar

I did a full test of Debian 6. And I must say that I have encountered the same problems as the author of this article. I also a blog for 2 last years were I test Linux Distro and wrote article about my experience of user.
I agree with the author. Debian 6 is not a good version. A want to be too purist. We forget that the essential is to have a simple system to install, configure and use daily. I so hated my experience I had the impression of having a system of 90 years front me. Really I do not understand the direction of the developers team .

As stated so well the author of this article, it is difficult to criticize Debian. Without incurring the wrath of fans maniac Debian.
Too many CD and DVD. It's confusing for the novice and the same means which would start on Linux.

With less courage than the author of the article, I chose not to do an article on my blog an article on Debian. Because I knew that I would have the maniac fans of Debian on my back.

Freebsd has the same problems as Debian. Lots and lots of attention but in the end who really install and use. Except the fans. Which represents only a small number of people in the world of PC.

I think the expectations were high.
