Hello Rafi:

1) If you are unwilling to learn, debian is not for you. Other than
that, its pretty easy to grasp the administration, and to install the
apps you want/need.

Please also note that this list is not concerned with such issues, talk
to debian-user instead

2) Since there are many choices to make, and the install might be on a
machine hundreds of miles away, the install process is text-only. There
are however graphical admin frontends, like synaptic. Installation
requires a basic skill to read and understand english (or one of several
other languages).

3) Debian provides a choice of many desktops, like KDE, Gnome,
Enlightenment, XFce.. Take the one you like. :)
