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.

Debian didn't include the required firmware? Boohoo it never will.

Other Linuxes work? Use them. Of course without Debian you wouldn't have a base for most of those distros.

I run a large linux infrastructure. We have a policy of being distribution agnostic. I run Fedora on my Laptop, I suggest Ubuntu to most people. But on every server possible, I prefer Debian. It is sane, it is stable. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but why would I want them on my servers?

This should not have been published.
