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 is fantastic

I'm writing this comment on a Debian machine. I have two others. They work great. Installs, IMHO, are far easier than on rpm distros. The number of pacakages is unrivalled by any other distro. And Debian does not have a "commercial" vendor ax to grind. Long live Debian.
