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.

1. Writing such a big article for criticizing a Linux distro, seems very wired.

If you are a true OSS lover you could report the problems as bug not criticizing them this way. (may be a marketing reason for other distro).


Debian is the Only distro who care about the freedom.

We use Iceweasel (instead of firefox)
"no inclusion of trademarked Mozilla artwork":

I have been using Debain as primary disto from the last 6 years, and happy with it.

I have dualboot MacOSX and Debian.
Ofcourse Debain is my primary distro.


I never had driver problem with my PC or MacBook. In worst case you may need to recompile kernel done....

If you dont like a distro try others...and encourage others to use that.
Criticizing is not a good option.

If you want to install debian in new hardware you should use testing or unstable (not the stable release).

wiki.debian.org

Wish you good luck your new distro ;)
