If anything looks like, or worse, runs like Windows 7, 8, ... whatever that is an excellent reason to stay away from it.

If you have to deploy Debian to a larger number of machines you may want to learn about Debian's preseeding, a nice and easy way automate the installs.

I'm an avid windows hater as well, but my work windows 7 installation has been rock solid for years.

Dear Hass...,
hope it works well, maybe the cost of "crossover" will increase in subsequent years? It would be great if software was consumed equally but other factors influence this.
If 'bosses' are open to libre software then great but many are not especially in the UK where Microsoft seems to have a particular hold.

Fred.
