-- I know Unix well, but find that many of the problems with Debian are Debian specific, not Unix.

The most notorious problem source to me is dpkg/dselect, which gets one into such a convolved situation in some cases that there is no recovery. The second worst area is X; we nave lost 2 different installs because X would lock up the console on setup. Many other problems are the standard cycles of bugs in each release; again product specific.

Still, I use it!
