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'm not bagging on automation. I like that Fedora works on my stuff out of the box, and I don't have to worry about messing with wpa_supplicant. It saves me time, and it's the reason I use it over FreeBSD on my desktops and laptops.

This Debian. This isn't Ubuntu or Mint which strive for perfect installs; People should expect to do some work when installing Debian. Adding wizards strips the power and obfuscates configurations, Red Hat is really bad about this, so it's nice to have distros that are just barebones.
