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.

Simplicity+stability better than complexity+stability

When you use a dstribution there is a reason for it, maybee you want stability and servers some want desktop distribution, others want to create software and more but for all of this after you spent freetime with the fun of building thing from scratch, which distribution will survive or at least become more popular is the one that can bring simplicity and stability in the same time. If you tell me that Debian doesn't want more people using their distribution, that they want to stay just absolut expert linux user (why not only the one involved in it) using it well they doing right. Maybee i should create a distribution only for me i will call it BeRReGoN's linux Distribution with only me who know how to install it configure it for sure all other fear to use it ;)
