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.

Debian unstable ???

I have used Debian and Knoppix for a while and am now using Redhat 9 with Ximian. Actually the only reason why i use redhat is because of the ximian desktop, which personally i think is fantastic. redcarpet does a very good job in terms of updates and software installation, however i dread the day i want to upgrade to redhat x, i think i really will miss debian then. anybody any experiences with the vanilla gnome under debian unstable in terms of usability and stability (compared to ximian gnome - such a shame that ximian stopped to support debian with XD2, otherwise i would definetely go for Debian!!!)
