Regarding your Contributions, I think Slackware and Debian should not be named as first distros to a newbie, because they are hard to install, just not the typical beginner distros. What do you think? --ThorstenStaerk 07:28, December 16, 2008 (UTC)

Hi Thorsten, I find, that this opinion is today completely wrong: The actual concept from Slackware is to install all the complete distribution, it is very as easy as a baby would do it! and you get a complete Linux with best and highest performances. All people can do that... really. The actual concept from Debian is to install from web without any difficulty the most actual highly stable system you want, "tasksel" gives the choice between different main goals. The starting ISO is of only 35 Mb ... But I see and understand, that you prefer commercial Linux's (::) ! OuI 18:19, December 17, 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your point of view, so we keep it as it is. Reminds me of an email footer I once read: "Even a hen could install Debian if you put enough corns onto the ENTER key" :) --ThorstenStaerk 18:32, December 17, 2008 (UTC)
