Re: So I tried Debian Squeeze...
I've been running a distro based on Debian Wheezy for a little bit now, and yes, it does get complicated to set up certain features out of the box - but the list does continue on after that. I think it's just a different way of doing things, that does some getting used to. Hell I don't even come close to understand what I'm doing most of the time, but it runs very well on my system.
Even though this is not the first time I've tried Debian, it is the longest I have stuck with it - it comes down to how much patience you have really. It either sinks in, you learn it and keep moving (to more complications) or you bin it and go back to basic everything functioning properly out of the box buntu (no offense buntu users)
When it comes down to it - from the little I know about Debian these would be the key points before even attempting to install and run it.
Do I have enough time to spend trying to figure this, that and the other out?
Am I prepared to take a step deeper into the Linux world? Do I wish to (attempt) learn it?
How much patience do I have? (before I throw my system out the window)
Am I sure I have this much time to spend trying to figure out even the most basic things?
And of course it all realy depends on how deep you want to go. If you just need a basic system and don't want to tinker with it. That's pretty easy (once you know how of course) but if you do like to play around and see what you are capable of doing, well prepare to feel frustration at it's finest.
I do wonder sometimes (offtopic) how must it feel like to set up Arch the first time (without superior linux knowledge) because I had a hard time with Debian and yet Arch is meant to be infinately harder.
