Non-informative frontpages like the LXDE one are what scares me away.


In what way is debian.org informative?

" An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run." - I believe more people would understand better if we would say "Debian is freedom respecting alternative to Windows and Mac OS X".

"

Debian provides more than a pure OS: it comes with over 43000 packages, precompiled software bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine." - we provide more than OS and then we say it is software bundled (wtf should mean for average Joe "nice format") which is exactly what every other OS does and is OS thing, so what is more than pure OS here?

Everything else is click to come to some other page to read something more about it.
