The above video tutorial will show: how to prepare Debian GNU Linux USB Stick via Windows 7 and how to boot it. (different on every laptop, but F12, DEL and F2 should get one going)

Setup of Debian 10 is easy as pie, if internet WIFI/LAN connection works… thus:

Mr Stallman: very very very sorry: it is the year 2020 and there are not enough 100% Open Source drivers for WIFI cards… thus closed source drivers are still needed for newbies to get going… (firmware-10.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso)

why debian?

  • easy setup
  • high quality
  • comes with Firefox and Libre Office pre installed
  • easy to use (yes sooner or later the terminal/command line will be needed never the less)
  • the basis of Ubuntu and thus more minimalistic (UNIX K.I.S.S)

hardware vendors: start publishing driver sources under GPL!!!

otherwise: Users will have to swap Laptop/Noteboook WIFI card to for example Atheros ar5b95 Wireless WiFi WLAN … in order to install install 100% Open Source GNU Linux Debian (debian-10.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso)

get it for 10 bucks at eBay!
