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 been readiing the slew of comments where the review mostly was burnt down to the ground. now let's see and look for SLES, RHEL, UBUNTU and OpenSUSE. Compare that to debian and the rigid (understandable) way of picking code. And then you start to see that actually there is more truth in this review than you want to see.

I know. If someone attacks your favorite set, ou're doing all things to 'fix', 'debunk' etc it.

But what if it really is not that good?

I tend to test these kind of distributons undre vmware workstation. I haven't even got it to boot.

I'll see what the root cause is of this. Anyways, each on it's own, right?
