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 just felt the need to point this out somewhere, although I haven't used the new Debian, so I can't comment on it in particular. I notice a large number of the rebuttals people have made to complaints about hardware support (particularly wifi) focus on the fact that windows XP is equally bad. That may be true, but it isn't entirely reasonable to make an apples-to-apples comparison between an os released 3 weeks ago and one released 8 years ago. One would hope things have progressed since 2003.
