See my previous post.  He's trying to install Debian, let's help him
install Debian.  However hard people think it is, choosing Desktop from
the dreaded tasksel gets most people on their way.

    He's also trying to install Opera and yet noone's jumped on the 3 people
that are shoving him towards Firefox and Thunderbird.  I find that far more
rude than suggesting another Debian based distro which is, by design, easier
on those new to Linux and/or Debian in general.

I'm sure that no rudeness was intended. Nobody told him not to install Opera. I think the gist was that as the Mozilla stuff is in Debian, it would be easier to install, not to mention a good intro to apt.
