Debian and its clones After reading many of the posts regarding the recent OSNews story, "An Unbiased Review of Debian 3.0", I thought this article may be useful to those who would like to try Debian, but are a little intimidated by its installer. Several of the posts to the above mentioned story indicated that Debian's installer was a huge hurtle for many people, who would otherwise like to try it. I have found Debian to be the most useful flavor of Linux, so I wanted to write an easy, though somewhat long, walkthrough in the hopes of allowing a wider audience to experience first hand this stable and unique Linux distribution.

what will the impact of this be?

I am sure most folks will want xdm.

most maybe... not all...

personally i hate it with a passion and while probably not quite as many agree with me as disagree... im sure theres still enough who do that you shouldnt just automatically ~assume~ this...

how hard could it possibly be to simply type "startx" when you want it... and when you dont its not taking up your resources...
