Now you're the one who's making outlandish claims. The foundation's most often touted goal is to create a low cost computer that can be "used by kids all over the world to learn programming". Debian is a perfectly adequate platform for this goal, as are many other distributions. While I agree that Arch is an excellent distribution and well-suited to tinkering, to suggest that Debian is somehow the antithesis of that is ludicrous.

Slow down, take a deep breath and re-read that I said.

I never claimed that Debian was against the principle of Pi (in fact I wasn't even commenting on Debian at all). I simply said people who just lazily want a working desktop are against the principle of Pi.

You said yourself that it's designed to be a low cost programmers board, so in-spite the knee-jerk reaction, you're effectively agreeing with my statement.

Now if only you could undo that unnecessary down-mod you've given me.....
