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.

Props for having the balls to slam Debian. Debian is terrible as a desktop distro, or possibly even for servers now. However it's rock solid, and is a fantastic base for other distros. Furthermore, as someone else mentioned, it still craps all over Fedora.
