Debian and its clones Debian is not quite like any other distro out there. If bigger is better, then Debian wins hands down.

Travel writer and recent Debian convert Robert Storey tackles the whole installation procedure head on and gives his report.

I have to agree; Gentoo's portage is extremely flexible, complete, up-to-date and most of all, a simple cmdline interface.

The day that Gentoo stops working so well is the day I look at another distro; me thinks that day will never come.
