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.

Sorry if someone has already posted this;

Boom, no more network issues, and something just got narfed if he has no gnome-screenshot, all the Debian Squeeze installs I've done had no problem with that.

Though as he says, Debian is more server grade, and why the crap would you install gnome (or give a damn about gnome-screenshot) on a server. Use Ubuntu or any other number of 'desktop' OSes if you honestly think Debian has too many steps to install. It really isn't any harder than Ubuntu to install. At least I've never had Debian hose my entire Hard drive like I had Ubuntu do, with telling it to replace the current Linux install (I had Win7 on there too.)
