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.

I often forget that you're the master of Devil's Advocate here.

Or just the devil, depending on your POV. ;)

I would understand completely if my wireless card's manufacturer had suddenly closed the source and the kernel team removed support

I have seen that before so I guess I'm not surprised.

Maybe I've just become lazy and spoiled by Slackware. (o.O)

Slackware was actually the first distro I used and when I first tried RHEL I couldn't believe what a mess the install process was in comparison.

This is one of the better distros for home/small business server use and is Slackware based.
