Taking a look At Debris Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| I won't do a full review of Debris Linux until version 2.0 is released. I
| generally consider it unfair to judge a distro based on beta or development
| code. What I can say now is that while I've found a few relatively minor bugs
| (which I will document and report, of course), I believe Debris Linux 1.7.0
| is surprisingly close to being ready for prime time. For a newcomer to Linux,
| the only issue that might be challenging is figuring out what to add to make
| hardware that isn't supported out of the box functional. Debris Linux is
| already worth a look if you want a small, simple Ubuntu-based distro that
| performs well. The developers are successfully sticking with their philosophy
| and meeting their goals for a compact distro while providing the basic
| functionality most people will look for.
