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.

it appears to me your revue is not too fair...

first option : read the documentation, this might help...how about 6.01 ? links to manual and installer manual are on the download page...

second option (my choice not so much free time for reading...) : i use a special debian version :
for instance, one of many choices like aptosid (10 minutes install on hd with everything configured, after what i can modify my repos to adapt the distro to my wishes, localisation, packages install, personalisation...(aptosid : stabilized sid debian).
other, like k-x-lx-buntu and the derivated
stuff is also usable...

well well using the debian pure squeeze isos after reading doc will take how long ???

concerning the nonfree packages (firmware and any other
progs) install firmware-nonfree [what is more easy to add the debian-multimedia repos, and edit sources.list.d/debian.list to add contrib nonfree ???]

allright i'm done
