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 ;)


He also earned that lack of respect by not showing respect to the reader of his article. If this is a review - where are the specs of the machine he tried this on? Where are the sites he found the firmware from (you know to save others the bother)? Where is the commentary on using the system and not just the installer? Where doe she describe what level of user he is - how many other systems he's installed and of what types? Where is the constructive critique, suggestions for improvement and other things you might find in a proper review? The absence of these things shows little respect to the reader and really just makes this little more than a rant down the pub.

I struggle to see how any reader could ascertain whether it was even worth them downloading and trying Debian from this review?
