Well, if you think a colourful Anaconda based installer is the only
thing that is user friednly, Debian isn't! However, I believe the
Debian installer is very simple, though not aesthetic.

Slackware isn't for those people.

I am sorry, but I will have to disagree with you. Please be clear
about which command line tools you mention. If you are talking about
some utility to compile kernels, yes, Debian has make-kpkg, which is
excellent, but that really isn't just for kernel hackers. I use it
myself often... but other than that, what arethose utilities which
Fedora lacks?
