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.

Seems lazy to not implement the same comforts as other distributions have done for how many years now.
I haven't tried it myself, since I have tried so many distros lately, and really ended back up on ubuntu, which I can completely understand the popularity of.
As for the freedom, I can also understand that some have strong opinions on that, but really, most people just want what is available today. Ofcourse one would prefer opensource variants, but hey, it's not here, so one'd have to use the "blobs". That's what I like about Ubuntu too, they recently now included option at installtime, for some codecs, that you had to do some extra mousclicks or similar, for before. In other words, the more comfort, and less inconvenience, is a step forward, for any distro. ;)
