Yeah, and that is important, system should be at the same time 'friendly'
and 'profesional'. Inexperianced user could also be able to use Debian,
cause if he don't, there it is less probable, that he will use it in a
future (don't forget that we have still dynamicly developing RedHat, Open
Linux, S.u.S.E., etc.). (example of friendly and proffesional system:
(sorry) windows nt ;-).

Yeah, is the Debian developed only for ISP ? Very often they still don't
want this new (yeah, Linux is new!) OS, and they install comercial
UNIX'es (SunOS).

By the very end, i'd like to note, that Debian is not 'not popular' but
it's rare :-(.
