Debian Sarge focuses on easy installation

Debian developers have completely rewritten the Debian installer for the next version of the Linux distribution, code-named Sarge. The update, due around the New Year, is the first major release of Debian since July 2002 when the current version, Woody, was released.

The next major release of Debian distribution is finally making installation easier for non-technical users. This is good news for me because I don’t like systems where I have to think what should I do and I really like this mouse thing and GUI instead text based installation screens.

You can find more info about Sarge from Debian site
