Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

Based upon the difficulty you had with Debian 6, I seriously doubt you could handle CentOS or Scientific Linux.

If, based upon your negative comments, all work ceased upon debian forever, where will your easy to use 700mb live CDs come from?

Canonical does not have the stuff to build a distro from the kernel up. Besides, it would ruin their business plan.
