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.

This is exactly why Linux in general is never going to take over anything - the target audience is the 1% already using it. :/ (And I know there are easier-to-install distros, but even then you get your package managers, questions about KDE & Gnome, and god knows what else... just never going to be a real replacement desktop OS.)


I know I shouldn't fall for this one but those easier-to-install distros make decisions like which window manager/package manager to use for you - it's one of the reasons they are easier to install. And do you really expect to be taken seriously if you make a statement dismissing all types of something with an untested criticism aimed at just one? Isn't that like me dismissing Windows because the cut-down version supplied with an OEM PC was up to my expextations?
