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.

I've been waiting forever for someone to say "that's the way Debian is. If you don't like it, use something else!"

Actually, I thought the review also crossed the line. I almost registered at their site to join the flame war, and I don't even like Debian!

This whole thing seems to me like going to a burger joint and complaining because they don't have chicken.
