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.

if it has a wired NIC port then it's meant to be plugged in to a wired network.

- you'll get faster transfer rates
- you'll get dhcp setup clean
- you'll get better support because wired nic manufacturers didn't make such a mess of the driver/firmware
- you'll get more security during your install since you won't be open to the multitudes of wireless vulnerabilities

(If your wired, I have to get into your home. If your wireless, I have only to get anywhere within range.)

Wireless is fantastic for puttering about the house to any comfy chair you like but it's far from a desirable medium to install over.

(and for the love of Baud people. if your doing support over any form of remote desktop software, have the user plug a wire into the machine cause wifi is dog slow when your spraying screenshots over the network)
