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.

RE: Knoppix as an installer
by JCooper on Wed 3rd Sep 2003 15:21 UTC

If you're a Gnome die hard fan like me, then the hard disk installation using Morphix is flawless..well..apart from having to modify a user file here and there, and for some reason the link on the desktop to home, and finally changing the contents of the apt sources list.

Apart from the minor errors (which weren't hard to fix - I'm a noob) I can say the morphix installer leaves you with a very stable debian. Plus, you're only an apt-get install away from the latest Evolution, Open Office, Nautilus, Epiphany, Firebird, Gaim etc etc etc...
