This evening, I installed Debian on a machine which was formerly running Gentoo. I used the new debian-installer currently in testing for release with sarge whenever that happens. It was pleasntly simple and quick, and as I said I now have KDE running and mythfrontend running with video, sound, and everything working with basically no configuration. I did find one hiccup in the installer with resizing existing partitions, but it was easily solved. I installed the unstable distribution for now which includes KDE 3.2 and a 2.4.26 kernel!
