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.

I thought the whole point of computers was to do as much work for us as possible!

and yes, I run Linux on my systems, I have for years. But having gone through the 'pioneer' days in the 90s and having messed around with Gentoo, Arch etc, nowadays I'm perfectly happy to use Linux Mint - because it just installs and does what I need straight out of the box. I've come to the conclusion life's too short to spend it installing obscure drivers and codecs just to watch that youtube clip.
