These don't seem consistent to me. If people are the wrong side of a dialup
link, they need to have a local MTA (actually most people ought to have that
even if they're not, although the configuration is significantly simpler if
they're on a permanent fast network connection and so don't need local
mailboxes) and a local news server.

Other than that, it sounds good---not for me, and probably not for the
majority of Debian's existing users, of course, but for people who want a
simple desktop OS that's easier to use than Windows.

Good luck.
