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.

It might get more respect if people who think it is great showed respect to others. Look at the comments in this article to see the lack of respect shown to the reviewer.

Jeez ;)


Well, he earned that lack of respect. Debian is explicitly aimed at people who are willing to learn and read documentation before installing it. What did the reviewer do? He saw that there are dozens of installation images, than decided not to bother with getting a clue and just took a shot at one. Then he complained. Excuse me?

A somewhat informed linux user knows that Debian is not for noobs or people in general who don't want to bother with RTFM. This guy blogs about linux regularly, so naturally, I expect more from him than Random LinuxUser Joe. 5 minutes on google (or 10 at most) would have yielded an installer image with firmwares included (solving the wireless problem instantly). What kind of respect do you think a reviewer can expect who doesn't even bother to do this?
