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.

Serious question: Why? Why in today's world where even Windows of all things has out-of-the-box support for virtually every wireless chipset in existence, should we have to plug in a computer that isn't meant to be hardwired in the first place?


Which laptop isn't meant to be hardwired? They all have network adapters.

I don't see any claims or allusions to widespread hardware support out of the box on their website. Debian isn't a consumer product and doesn't pretend to be one. It is Ubuntu that is trying to get on Grandma's desktop and should be judged against Windows. Debian doesn't make false claims about being ready for human beings.
