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 think we've established that there's no necessity for one install method to be substantially more or less restrictive than the other. You're probably just better off making the general argument that, if you want a hassle free install, use a more curated Debian derivative and don't bemoan the 'toolkit OS' crowd their OSes, which suit their usage scenarios. Trying to tie this reasoning to particular pieces of technology seems more counter-productive, than anything.
