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.

That wasn't a review. It was an angry, non-constructive rant.

My new job has required me to go back to Redhat after a year of Debian. It's so painful it almost brings tears to my eyes. Just configuring the network on a Redhat system is a nightmare compared to Debian, and the least said about RPM, Yum and the woeful amount of software in the RHEL repositories, the better.

Show me an *actual* review of Debian 6 being installed on decent server class hardware, or an actual review with constructive criticism in it, and I might care.


This is just par for the course. This is what passes for an opinion piece here. It makes sense though. All other "normal" OSNews posts are generally opinion filled diatribes anyway. They wouldn't be considered objective by any respected news outlet. Don't worry though we have Thom to remind us that OSNews is not a news site. It's just a blog that resembles a news site in all but journalistic integrity. I guess being objective is just too hard.
