Ok. But I am actually responsible for two computer pools in my
department at university and I ever liked to install a base system from
cd and apt-get xwindows as well as install XD1 over the net.

With the new red-carpet I thought that the last point would even become
easier to do - now, since they might not support debian I had a look
into redhat which really takes much longer to install, clutters your
disk with software not needed and is different in configuration [1]

So, count me in supporting a XD2-for-debian-project.


[1] Everything said after just installing it one time and having a rough
look into it - so everything might be easier once used to it.
