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.

I have gone through the review and found it is in bad taste. Or, probably the author never used any GNU/Linux distro at all! Otherwise, he would not have made those comments. None of the Windows OS work till you install the device drivers. My experience with Fedora taught me that if you have multiple distros installed in your hard disk Fedora wo'nt recognize them after installation of Grub. Well, like many desktop users, I am neither a techi nor a geek. But experience has taught me that when every other distro fails, I can get back all my partitions through Debian. Before installing was he not aware that Debian has declared that they have got rid of all proprietary drivers from their kernel and would not offer any proprietary software by default. Those who need such drivers or software should separately download from Non-free repositories maintained by the Debian. I have installed Debian at my office & home PC, an old one and ASUS EEEPC and had no trouble configuring network with Debian. As for taking shot of Desktop, no distro contain more software in their repository than Debian. And I again say I am not a techi and my command over command lines is really rudimentary. But I have no problem in doing whatever I wish to do by using Debian. Thank you!
