Good, as usual, but the 2.6 kernel wouldn't use my ImPS/2 mouse (I use a USB > PS/2 adaptor, but I don't think it should affect it). I think this is a problem with all 2.6 kernels, but I don't know, I might be misguided.
Debian GNU/Linux follows the real core values of the Free Software Foundation. It is freely downloadable and the Sid installer is better than ever, though admittedly the hardware detection leaves something to be desired, since many devices are difficult to set up due to the high security policy.
Debian allows you access to over 8710 free software packages through its apt package system, which is on the whole very simple and easy to use and generally unbreakable, though not so much in the unstable branch.
As another reviewer, Debian can be as hard or as difficult as you want it to be. Setting up hardware needn't be difficult if you do it properly.
