Hi Gilles, What hassle exactly? The last time I tried the Debian Etch installer it was not really more hassle than inserting the Debian installer CD and hitting "Enter" all the time. While I still had the flexibility to do several installations with SoftRAID and LVM without touching a command line recently. Of course, the amount of preconfiguration may differ, but I take that as an advantage at times. Actually I did not agree what to what OpenSUSE for example did to the KDE start menu. Granted, the original one isn't a usability pioneer either, but IMHO thats no reason to make it worse than that. So I rather wait for a well thought out replacement for it in KDE 4. And actually in the interview Linus wrote about "easy to install *and* upgrade" (bold added by me). And when a distribution is easy to upgrade its Debian. Thats actually why I do not install it that often ;-). I think that Linus may not even have *tried* installing Debian and thus only talks about hearsay. So I don't take his oppinion that seriously. If he did try to install Debian and found concrete issues that would be a different case.
