Anyway, some initial thoughts on Debian. Coming from a Slackware background, a lot of things are not intuitive. For example: in Slackware, when I install Ndiswrapper, it’s a simple case of ./configure, etc etc and then a bit of modprobe-ing and there you have it. It’s a wee bit different under Debian. In fact, it’s a lot more different. A couple of times I came close to giving up altogether, but I persevered and it all works fine.
