Debian is one of the first GNU/Linux distro's, and possibly the most geek-oriented. In particular I believe the Blockstackers Intergalactic crew favors it.

It is also the distro most friendly to the root Free Software community, and one of the only ones to include the full name of the operating system, "GNU/Linux", while so many other people (including Linux.com) cheerfully omit the crucial first 4 characters. As one of the greatest friends of Stallman and Co., it would be a huge blow for them to come out against the FSF and the GNU Project and start removing GNU manuals from 'main' or 'contrib'.

That's why.

Take care,
