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.

If one's looking towards Debian to replace say, Windows as a desktop OS in the way that you install it and everything just works then no, you have not come to the right distro.

There's Ubuntu and derivate distros, there is OpenSUSE for that type of switch.

People have used Debian as a server OS for eons. I never heard them complain. They love it, if something breaks it gets fixed or gets worked around and the community propagates the solutions.

As soon as people learn to treat OSes as tools we'll have less rubbish reviews. I would have liked to see what someone that runs a server for various things and upgraded to the new version has to say about it.
