It might not be 100% Debian Pure, but the Knoppix disk install 
certainly works for me. Also, apt-get is seamless...the German 
sources get me anything I want without dependency hell.

Christ, I don't know why Debianistas are so fsckn fanatical...not 
only do they call it GNU/Linux, they don't believe that anything 
other than the officially installed Debian *is* Debian. Let me guess, 
you don't think that Libranet is Debian either? :(

Bloody fanatics...
