I didn't work much with the Storm Package Frontend, but it seemed to me as
if it was very very close to dselect, only graphically. I think it's nice
for new users.

I think so, too. The people are really friendly and want their distribution
to be as much compatible to official Debian as possible. At CeBIT fair in
Germany, they gave half of their booth to us.

Definitely. The installation program is not that powerful, but it's very
comfortable and easy to use for beginners. The current boot disks are good
for experienced users, but most Linux beginners will go away and install
another distribution because all of the main other distributions have nice
easy-to-use graphical installation now.
