True. At least as far as I know.
OTOH, reading the "Before installing Debian" section of the installation
manual (all eight subsections) gives a pretty good indication that one
is not looking at an "automagic" or idiot-proof process.

Not to say that it wouldn't be a good thing to point out explicitly, and
possibly with mention of the alternatives...
On the other other _other_ hand, just to play devil's advocate back at
you, the spinoff distros are mentioned on the Debian site:
http://www.debian.org/misc/children-distros.en-us.html
(Just in case someone's trying to get started in Linux without having
discovered distrowatch.com)
