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 have 3 different Ralink based USB NIC's, with a 2500, a 2571, and a 2870 based chipset.
The drivers included in every kernel in every distro I have ever hopped to are pardon my language, total crap.


As a fellow owner of a Ralink card I understand completely. It's a total mystery to me Why Linux has such shitty support for Ralink. There are constant calls for companies to publish full hardware specs and sample drivers and then the manufacturers that do are not supported? WTf?
BSD has had great support for Ralink for years (in fact, that's why I got it. Cheap and supported!) and for some reason Linux still doesn't.
