Debian and its clones Debian is not quite like any other distro out there. If bigger is better, then Debian wins hands down. Aside from having the largest collection of free software packages, Debian also runs on 11 platforms. But there is more to Debian than just size. Travel writer and recent Debian convert Robert Storey tackles the whole installation procedure head on and gives his report.

I'm also a big fan of Debian. Apt really rocks, especially
if you use it trough aptitude.
If you want an easy-to-install Debian, try Libranet.
Their v2.7 is available for free download and it has
a very nice installer.
It is more friendly to the unexperieced user then Woody is, because of it's system administration menu, which is not as sexy as YAST, but it does a fine job.
