Debian Presentation for FLUX
I'm jazzed because Adam Glass of FLUX (Florida Linux Users eXchange) has asked me to do a Debian install presentation. I really enjoy using Debian because all the work is taken out of compiling things. Most people complain because Debian is harder to install than most distros, but once you get past the install its smooth sailing. Not only that, but because Debian is completely volunteer, to upgrade your packages is free (no more downloading and burning ISOs)
I've also gotten everyone in the office switch to Debian. At first they gave me crap for even suggesting it, but once I got it installed, they realized how easy it is to maintain and UPGRADE.
My only real goal for the presentation is to open people's mind to the Debian packaging system and show them how easy it can be.
