Re: Reality check! [was: Re: Debian goes big business?]
I did a fresh install yesterday from a hamm CD (our free
CheapBytes CD). I chose the scientifc workstation option. This
caused a minor nightmare. The only reason I was able to complete the
install is because I have a few hundred hours experience in
maintaining debian systems. I really like Debian, but it's
installation is just terrible. (One problem is that fweb can get into
a state in which it can be neither installed nor removed) I can't
complain though, because I am not going to take the time to fix it in
the near future.
A commercial venture would be a good idea, because a
full time employee could do quite a bit for the installation process
in a few months, and contribute back to the project.
