What is the reason debian does not install like other OSs ?
Mostly because other OSes run on i386, period, whereas Debian runs on
something like 13 different architectures (i386, Mac, Sparc, Arm, etc),
and each arch version needs to stay fairly well synchronized with the
others. If you want a "Debian" that installs like other OSes, you might
want to take a look at http://www.debian.org/misc/children-distros.
Now, having said that, each release of Debian gets a little easier to
install than the last, and the next release, or the one after, should be
more like what you expect Today. (Of course, by then, you'll be asking
why Debian doesn't install like Tomorrow's other OSes.)
Debian might be tough to install, but you only have to do it once.
