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.

Amusing installation review

That was a fun review to read in my opinion. I've been using squeeze for several months now and I am quite happy with it. It is stable with tons of software in the repository, as always with Debian.

However, I do think the review har a point. The installation was a little bit frustrating, and I had patience only because I knew it would pay off (and it did). The installation doesn't need to be this complicated. It is 2011, some more polish in the installation process wouldn't hurt.

That said, I like Debian a lot. Once set up, it is a clean, nice OS that works well.
