I do not need many features, in fact I can easily be happy with a
system that has less features. I am tired of the bloated desktop
that takes CPU cycles but that I do not use. I am probably looking
at moving to Fluxbox on Debian. I see where some have labeled the
icons of Debian as the worst on the planet, well not quite but they
are not as nice as Ubuntu but so what?
Debian comes with 18,733 packages. Debian 5 Lenny will have 5 DVDs
to download with those packages, that is simply beyond any other
distribution. The scope is not just in relationship to the packages
that are offered, these packages are maintained by volunteers who
cover the globe providing insight and thinking from various
cultures and backgrounds. Of course I recognize that all
distributions are international in scope but Debian 5 is a group of
volunteers which separates them from a group of paid programmers
run by a corporation."
