"Debain is the only group of software developers who still believe that Richard Stallman invented programming. Everyone else now correctly credits Bill Gates for doing so. Debain developers hold themselves separate from the rest of the Linux community because of their pride in not stealing from other operating systems to build their version of Linux. All other versions of Linux are based directly on Windows."
"Some aspects of Debain are very backward. For instance, sometimes software comes with extra programs that are designed to enhance the user's experience. On the rare occasions when the main programs install at all, these extra programs, like Bonzai Buddy, or Gator Desktop (made by Google) almost never work. And Debain doesn't even come with Windows Update. If you want to use necessary American business software like Outlook, forget it."
"want to berate WrEtch for not including Beagle++, which I simply must have, but really have no idea what it is. I've read a lot of websites talking about it, so it must be pretty good. I tried running Halo 2, Final Fantasy X, Guitar Hero, Gears of War, Zelda: Twilight Princess, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. on this latest version of Debain, but none of these mission critical apps worked. Absolutely none of them. This only goes to prove that Debain WrEtch is a lousy operating system. How do they expect to compete with Enterprise Ready operating systems like Vista with these sorts of limitations? Strike two!"
"With Vista, all I had to do was get a USB stick (because the network drivers don't "take") and walk it over to my other machine and get a beta account on the nVidia site, and sign the NDA and wait for my email response and then find the right driver to download, and then I downloaded it and put it on the USB stick (well, I had to take it back off the USB stick because it wasn't recognized by Vista, and I had to burn it to a CD, but it's basically the same thing), and then I just had to run the installer and agree to the License Agreement and then make sure I went into the registry and set the keys that let me install an unsigned driver, and then the video card worked fine. Why can't Debain WrEtch be that easy? The obvious answer is "Communism."
"Disclaimer: While I haven't actually installed WrEtch, or any version of Debain, or any version of the Linux at all, on any of my machines, I've read a lot of websites about such platforms, in particular the ones at Microsoft.com, so I feel that I am completely qualified to review it. If you don't forward this story to three friends within the next five minutes -- and I'm totally serial here -- your computer will become infected with this Debain virus just because information about it was on your screen."
