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 took Debian 6.0 for a test drive on one of my PCs and the text installer works like a charm. Debian recognized all of my hardware and set-up properly.
I appreciate and understand the philosophical stance regarding non-free software, but, I'm not interested at all in gnu politics. However, I do think that Debian is a solid choice as a distro. I prefer and run Slackware.
