Wink I use Debian...but...

"A lot of new users that come to GNU/Linux from Windows these days want an OS that will run all their favorite applications, is easy to use and basically ready to go out of the box. Ubuntu, being all of this, managed for the first time to make GNU/Linux more popular for the masses, no minor feat.
Since Ubuntu is de facto just a polished Debian, it hides sheer untamed cosmic power under the GUI hood.
After a while many Ubuntu users will feel 'adventurous' and will start looking for a less graphic and more CLI oriented experience.
In fact, as experienced GNU/Linux users well know, point and click "is the caveman way of doing things", therefore such developments are a win-win situation for everyone. "

Plenty of tips there! Enjoy
