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.

"The installer has four million steps, it's clunky and too detailed."

"After seven thousand clicks during the partition setup, the system finally started copying files and took a merry one hour to do that, three to four times more than a typical contemporary distro."


I must have a complete inability to count, because I sure as hell didn't notice "four million steps" or having to click "seven thousand" times to install.


Hyperbole is a bitch. I was put off by it too. Even though I had a similar experience as the reviewer, I didn't get quite so frustrated. After all, there are hundreds of other distros that may be a better fit for me and my hardware.
