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.

Do you really need to install a distro in an airport,townsquare or coffeeshop?
and even if you do i'm yet to see any of those places whithout a lan nearby.
as for the rest:college info labs etc you'll be better off using wired connections:in fact some of them evem already have the cables set up as an alternative

Please read again what I quoted. jabbotts shifted the focus of the thread to "if it has a NIC it should be wired only" and I refuted that. Nowhere did I say one would be installing an OS in those places, nor would I.

Reading comprehension, son.

"if it has a wired NIC port then it's meant to be plugged in to a wired network. "

Your right.. I missed the qualifier "during install".. What with your entire complain being about wireless support at install time, I kind of assumed you would realize that I was talking about "at install time".

(hey, you started it by throwing the "moron" accusations around before confirming if you understood what I meant. You could simply have asked "do you mean use wired all the time or during install".. )

Again, install over wired nic.. for several reasons.. use your wireless for mobile connectivity after the initial install is done.. not a hard concept to comprehend.. what's making it so hard for you to understand?
