Surely not! ;) But you can used one to start the process if you can't
boot directly on the CD. BTW, if the interface is cool, I'm still prefer
the Debian boot-floppies, and especially, the tiny base installation.

corporation, "don't care about technical"-newbie and busy IS department.
It's really not an all-purpose-finely-twick-highly-configurable
distribution as Debian.
