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 totally agree. I tried to edit the GRUB config file after I installed the new FreeBSD next to Debian and COULD NOT find it. I'm normally an ArchLinux user and they've mostly stayed away from all the split config files. Or I haven't noticed a big change. Of course, Debian is the standard for so many other distros so whatever way they go is where all the others go, too.
