Debian and its clones "This interview was conducted with Martin F. Krafft, the author of 'The Debian System'. Despite Debian GNU/Linux's important role in today's computing environment, it is largely misunderstood and oftentimes even discounted as being an operating system which is exclusively for professionals and elite users. In this book Krafft, explains his concept of Debian, which includes not only the operating system but also its underpinnings."

Ubuntu seems to run well on older harware as well. To me, Debian "seems" to be more responsive on newer hardware. The driver issues I agree with. My older hardware works "out of the box", my new stuff takes more work. I think Ubuntu is a very good distro, I just believe Debian is still better. On hardware issues, I think it is a testament to the genius and skill of those who produce free software, given that hardware vendors seldom offer support to make their equipment run on Linux. That the writers of free software have made Linux, BSD run so well on so much is amazing. I wish I had just a fraction of their skill. I hope we all spread the word of Linux, we are having to enlighten people a few at a time. I think the shear number of distros are both a curse & a blessing. The blessing being the continued innovation.
