These two "streamline"s caught my eye: You express two fundamentally
different enhancements with one word; I would prefer, for the debconf

"The debconf tool makes configuration of the system easier and more
user friendly."

This also gets rid of the passive voice. (-:

Hm, this might confuse people who don't re-install on each
upgrade. Which task system? The one in the Linux kernel? I'd say:

"We also ship a more flexible task selection system for the initial
installation process."

Or, alternatively, put this sentence before the debconf statement.
