Thanks also from me to Ben who served me some time of writing. :-)

I would like to add the fact that not necessarily all currently existing
Blends are actually providing installation media.  The idea is that this
is not always necessary / wanted.  You can just install plain Debian
and install some metapackages on top of it.  You can have an overview
about those Blends with their metapackage content at


BTW, do you have in mind to create a certain Blend?

Kind regards
