But all those KDE packages clutter my usage of aptitude. So do the
windowmaker packages. And all those damn perl packages.
Just because *you* don't use something doesn't make it unimportant. One
of the big values of Debian is a long time tolerance and support of a
variety of users and use patterns, even those that are non-mainstream.
If you find the Debian menu to be clutter, fine. Ignore it, or change
the configuration to skip it.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating

world. -- seen on the net
