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 you want a review comparable that lets you know what you may be in for:

You get lots of screenshots of the installer and details about the install.

sarcasm aside, this is actually a fantastic way to preview what you could potentially be in for. I've often checked back to pull some single step from here for another machine I'm tossing together. You'll see places where config by text is still done too so it's not like it's promoting any side's agenda over the other.
