There are some Debian-based distro's with very nice installers and
things like that already. One of then is Progeny, we have Corel... The

Just install Woody as soon as it's stable. It has a nice desktop, a nice
browser (Konqueror, you can even make it support things like ActiveX, so
no blahs about not-supported-by-browser..), and you can install
StarOffice for people who want to write something.

everything they can, and now they can't do that anymore... And cfengine
is said to be a good program for the sysop to configure lots of systems
