- I have a debian mini CD, but aptitude is not that handy. I have to
know what package I want and then apt-get install do a tremendous work. Yet the mini cd do not recognise the network cards I have, so the install fails... even after install with the cd1, I still have problem to reconfigure any service (you have to know any part of debian to be able to make this at hand - what are the init levels in debian?)
Debian had a vote way back, and the decision was that they are uncessary complication (rationale given was the Debian user would only install programs they wanted to use).
Nevermind the problems of sysadmins, doing system maintenance.
In reality even with Upstart for compatibility reasons, init is there supporting run levels and in theory you could set them up. But then there's the problem of a poor default choice, on another script, which effectively makes it a big mess, to stop daemons in the right order.
That was actually, apart from better KDE environment, and the OOo version that were the main reasons to use openSUSE, when looking Q4/2007.
