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.

Not a honest review

This was not a honest review. If the reviewer was a newbie, it would be possible for him to make such review. But he isn't.
He already knew what to expect from Debian. He already knew that using CD1 only to install Debian wouldn't work if he was dependent on a proprietary wireless firmware.
He already knew that, by using the install DVD 1, it would contain all he would need to make Debian work in his machine.
So, everything was set for a disaster to happen, and then he happily reported the disaster, as HE WAS SET TO DO FROM THE VERY BEGINING.
That can be expected from a linux newbie, but that is inexcusable from any experient linux user.
