Any real differences between flavours?
I am going to put some Debian on kids computer (and mine, later on) together with Fedora.
I have tested some variants, Mepis and Munjoy are two candidates (sarge-installation has failed twice but will try once more).
Now the more I test Debian-based distro's, the more I get the feeling that the distro in itself is not really important. The only thing I can see is different is the initial setup, but I always change that anyway.
*) With a fast internet-connection I install/update from the same sources, so I get the apps/versions I want.
*) Configuration is done the same way, same files in same places - or I can use KDE's config-utilities if I like.
Is this correct, or am I missing something? Are there any underlying differences I might not see until later? On the "Red-Hat-track" I know about real differencies, but I'm not very familiar with Debian, never used it before (because I don't like it - but it does have far better/bigger repositories than Mandrake, Fedora or Slackware.)
