Debian documentation is a joke. It constantly refers to Debian versions by their nick names, and not their versions.
If I am new to Debian and go to read the manual and I see 'Squeeze', do you think I am going to know what the fuck that means? No, but if Debian actually used the official name, then it would fall in line with conistency. I.E documentation for 'Debian 6'.
People outside the development circle arn't going to know what Debian jargon.
This is a classic case of computer nerds lacking social skills. If you don't have good documentation, then the product isn't going to get used.
Debian use to be really popular. Now only old people use it. Why because new comers will choose a well documented distro over one that doesn't make sense. Life is too short to fuck around.
