Debian and its clones The 'Slug' has gained much-improved Linux support, thanks to a new Debian installer that targets the device. The first release candidate of the debian-installer for Debian's forthcoming 'Etch' distribution was released yesterday, offering nearly complete support to the Linksys USD 99 NSLU2 NAS gadget.

debian will rule the world.

NOTE: im not trying to troll, persey. i just very strongly believe it is a stable well enough known and copied distro to actually achieve this goal. be it in derivatives, or as the one distro to bind them.

I agree. Canonical may do a great job putting all the right pieces together to make Ubuntu a great distro, but without its Debian roots, I don't think it would be any better than the rest of them.

The thing is, not everyone wants their ingredients selected for tham and the cake already made and fed to them.

That is what is so cool about debian IMO, so many ways to install, so many choices to make, so many ingredients to make whatever you want...debian doesn't *just* make a distro it makes ingredients and you can make whatever type release you want. Of course, you can also just choose a "canned" debian if you wish.

Now if they just get back on the focus of free again.
