I was mostly joking, but I've never had much luck with it myself.  YYMV.  I 
have a friend who has been trying to get Knoppix installed and all her 
hardware working for about a month in her spare time.  Similar stories from 
another friend or two about Debian.

I've had bad experiences with apt, but it musta been something I did wrong. 
Really messed up my system, though.

DDDD   This administration intends to be candid about its errors. For as a
DK KD  wise man once said, `An error does not become a mistake until you
DKK D  refuse to correct it.' . . . Without debate, without criticism, no
DK KD  administration and no country can succeed and no republic can
DDDD   survive."                              - John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)
