I've been using unix a LONG time. I tend to run #FreeBSD when I can, #ubuntu when I must. Today I tried installing something that supported #debian and I thought "let's give that a shot." No. Just no. Why would you take a working operating system, rename every command, scramble the filesystem, and when you're all done, have exactly the same fucntionality you started with? Just with everything renamed. Life is too short to learn Debian. All pain, no gain.
