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.

You (and I, and others) keep mentioning Ubuntu as the "friendly Debian" alternative, but probably what should be mentioned instead is Mint Debian Edition. It has all the advantages of stock Debian, in that it pulls from Debian repositories directly, but overcomes that first-install horror. It's Debian plus some packages plus some friendliness; the perfect desktop IMO.
