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.

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?

You're right, I'm the idiot. I blame myself for reading/posting while half asleep. Not an excuse, just an explanation. This entire article discussion has been full of fail, on my part as well as others, and I think maybe I should just quit now while I'm behind.

Just for clarification, my standing opinion is: Debian now sucks for those of us who strive to use GPL-compliant hardware since even the GPL isn't good enough for them anymore, I loathe the idea of using wired access -- even for installing an OS -- if wifi is available and supposedly supported on my hardware, and I need more sleep before getting all bent out of shape over a post and making a fool of myself.
