In response to the recent reviews of Debian 3.0 seen here and elsewhere, Debian developer Colin Walters has opted to start a Debian desktop subproject. The announcement e-mail states: “There is no reason we cannot make Debian easy to use for the masses. I personally want to be able to completely replace the Windows XP machine that my mom uses. We’re a fairly long way away from that, but I strongly believe in the power of free software. We’ve come this far, and we can go much farther.” The temporary location for the homepage of this project is here which will hopefully be moved to debian.org.
