Just doing a Google Search for Debian brings the number one hit as
Forums are a really good way for the Linux community to interact and solve problems at the user level. Debian does have a forum and it is located at:
Going backwards up the list, I want downloads. To get Debian, you have to get it from the main web site http://www.debian.org/ or get it from a friend ,like me. The hard thing about getting it from the web site is which one to choose? I know that I like ia64 or i386, but what about the average Joe? And, my past experience has been that not all the downloads work every time, so I end up having to download about 3 times before I get a good one. But that is another story. Oh, and you might think you are getting a Live CD in your download, but that is not always the case. If it doesn't say Live CD then it just may not be.
That brings me to the next thing on the "download" subject. Most end users, like me, want to use a Live CD. This is an image you download and then burn to a disk to be used to sample the OS before installing it. If you want to install it, then you just click the icon on the desktop that says something like "install to hard drive". Locating this "Live CD" is a little hard on the Debian web site. But here I'll give you that link. There you go. Now have fun choosing which one to download. What is bit-torrent any way and once I get the bit-torrent, how can I use that? Hmmmmm
Next, would be documentation. To answer all my questions, I need documentation. So, I go to the main site to look for it. There it is. So I click on the link for more information and there it is. Lots of information to show me what to do. No fancy stuff here. It's all business. Hopefully, all that documentation will tell me what to download and how to get it to disc and then how to install it. And, I know because I have been through this, it does tell you how it all works.
Debian is a very stable distribution once you get it installed, configured, and running. I do like it and actually like the story and philosophy behind it. I do like Toy Story , stability and the flexibility of Debian. However, I still like the color blue and I like the ease of installation I get from Fedora.
