I use Debian now since beginning of 1999 and it mostly just worked.
OK, systemd is a nightmare but I got it nicely removed.

Also some other minor problems with bluetooth and network where
dependencies are missing if you do not use systemd.
But now anything is working perfectly.

Thanks to the mailingists with all its nice and competent subscribers.
