Thats interesting I will check the Debian archives for more details. I
will admit that I am currently spending 90% of my time in Debian ATM
really like the new Sarge installer and answers many of my gripes
including great wifi support for all the old laptops I am installing
and the partioning tools EVMS/LVM support is good. Pet peeve sshd
doesn't just work, sorry but I think it should. ;-)
Wish list is that it can be easily modifiable similar to Morphix and
that the initial boot has more troubleshooting tools. I guess a more
"Live-CD" environment is what I hanker after but for each architecture.
Where APT has the edge is all the add ons like apt-proxy it makes
managing a network of systems much easier. I also think that the Debian
packaging system is quite lovely once you start to get your head around
it. All said I think Debian and myself are going to be quite happy
