I booted from the Ubuntu CD the other day and was very impressed. It got my
wireless card right off. Back 6 months ago when I did a Debian install from
the minimal cd, I had to recompile the kernel etc to get my card to work.
Does anyone know if this has changed?
I am thinking seriously of recommending Ubuntu as a starting point for new

What is involved for a user to switch from Ubuntu to Debian?
