A couple of weeks ago I wrote a review of OpenSUSE. As one of the bigger distributions I asked the question whether OpenSUSE is a real alternative to Ubuntu.
I received a lot of comments about the review, some positive and some negative. I would like to clarify that I am not deliberately biased towards Ubuntu or Ubuntu based distros. Therefore this week I have decided to review Debian. To keep the comparison against OpenSUSE fair I have used a live disk again and I have also decided to go for the KDE version. Whilst reviewing Debian I installed it fully to the hard drive of the Samsung R20 computer used for the OpenSUSE review.

Before I talk about the main installation I would like to talk about the process of obtaining a Debian Live Image.
