Would you mind if I posted the entry in a version edited a bit than the
one you re-submitted? My edited version:
"Why do we use Debian? - I think Debian is one of the most stable Linux
Distributions available. And it's so easy to install packages on
Debian. Anyone can do "apt-get install gtypist". What's so difficult? I
think, if you don't want pure Debian, you can always try Knoppix.
We have every PC working on Debian (except one which is on Windows ... I
really don't know why :) ). We are basically using Debian in a small
cluster of eight nodes for running MPI applications using MPICH. Most of
the things work out of the box."
In the above I primarily fixed some spelling, removed a "coz" and the
Knoppix version number (it won't be 3.7 forever :-) ), moved two
sentences around to fit our format, and some other minor editing.
