Does it really carry weight?

I'm using the install that does work the best, this could change just by
one update. At the moment none of my Linux does fit to my needs. There's
no clean Debian, but AVlinux 5.0.3 on my machine
$ cat /media/spinymouse/avlinux/etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 \n \l
and it's really close to a clean Debian install.
