Debian and its clones "This is a critical review of Debian 3.0, but I want to say right from the start that I'm not trying to bait anyone. However I feel that reviewers often root for Debian as the open-source underdog, and give it marks which it doesn't deserve. If RedHat 8.0 came out with installation software like Debian 3.0 it would be savaged. I think it's time for an honest review, to spur the Debian developers into making the best possible distribution. I really want Debian to succeed. I want to use it daily, and recommend it to my friends. But I can't do that right now and I think it's important people understand why." Read the review and its (already long) discussion at DebianPlanet.

You might not be the only one, but i don't think you are part of a large crowd ;)

To add one small thing to the list of complaints about the setup process, i have actually *never* managed to get a working X setup by using the x config thingy. I always ended up having to edit XF86Config-4 by hand.

I'm actually happy to see that im not the only one who is totally unimpressed by debian as most other linux users i know seems to be pro debian ;)
