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.

We forget that the essential is to have a simple system to install, configure and use daily...Really I do not understand the direction of the developers team.

It's confusing for the novice and the same means which would start on Linux.


Wrong. It is not essential that Debian be easy for novice users. Debian's goal is to provide a free, stable, OS. Nothing more. That is the "direction of the developers team." They have routinely accomplished that goal to the satisfaction of _many_ users.
