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.

You are free to install anything you want from non-free. It just wont be included on the installer.

It is harder in Fedora. You need to use a third-party repo.

I use Free distros. I like that they are free. If I want to taint them, I can but I appreciate the policies. Not suiting you, doesn't make it stupid.
