I did. Testing, specifically, and ran into all the trouble one would

False. There are more examples than just I. Unless, of course, by 
"our" you mean some other web site than Debian.org.

False again. I came to Debian having never used Linux before, nor 
knowing any more than "Hey, check out this Linux thing" from one 
coworker. My decision was based entirely on reading the Debian web 
page, which has not changed substantially in structure since then.

Which is exactly what I was informed of when I, having problems with 
Testing, started asking questions in the Debian-user forum.
