Hi Eduard,
I was just struck by your choice of phrase. It, in a
way, expresses one
of the ideas behind Free software. The 'Where do you
want to go today?'
phrase came to mind as one phrase that does't quite
express Free
software because it says nothing about the user but
his/her choice to
use a piece of software. But 'How do you want to
configure it?' shows
the idea of the collaborative nature of Free software
where user and
developer jointly decide the future and work together
on it.

That expression is really key for Debian's
specificity, and kind of software system _and_
The question "How do you want to configure it?" is
also showing the versatility of Debian, but all that
power is controlled by the debian system, simbolized
by the fact that it(debian) is literally making a
question to the user how does he want to configure it
(use it for, ways of using it, etc.)
