Debian, World’s Easiest GNU/Linux Distro You Can Install

Filed under
Linux

It may have been true years ago that Debian GNU/Linux took some time and trouble to install. That’s not true today. A basic installation is pretty trivial.

“Assume the default” works in most cases where user-input is required. There is an even better option for newbies. If the newbie doesn’t mind the whole hard drive being taken over by Debian GNU/Linux (you don’t want to preserver the current OS/data) then there is a trivial method, FAI (Fully Automated installation). FAI is meant to be used by system administrators who want a scripted means of installing on random PCs. By providing reasonable defaults, such a system can be put on a CD.

Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
