Review: Debian 5: Lenny

,----[ Quote ]
| The last time I installed Debian was version 3.x and it was a little
| intimidating for me.  I had only installed Fedora before that and Debian did
| not have a GUI installer.  But I was able to figure it out and get it up and
| running without too much trouble.  Now with Debian 5, there is a GUI
| installer supported and I want to check it out and see how it compares to
| Anaconda and the other GUI installers I’ve seen.


Why do I like Debian

,----[ Quote ]
| Each distro has it's own appeal to different people. I am not going to make a
| judgment on any distro in this article. Just saying why I Like Debian so
| much.
| I like other distros for other reasons and maybe I'll explain those sometime
| in the future. Maybe not.
| All I can say is give me a Debian netinstall disk or a base livecd and I'm a
| happy camper.
| For me, it just doesn't get better than that.
