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.

The actually do sort of have that:

Paste in the results of "lspci -n" using any handy liveCD distro. It tells you what the hardware really is, if it's supported and what the driver is. Drivers listed are available in the repositories so then you just apt-get/aptitude/synaptic in the applicable package.

Even if it's not a Debian install I'm doing, I'll visit this site for a good list of hardware details.

It's not pretty with the latest flash and java applet but it works well.
