Some things I didn't like
- old software in squeeze, for example chromium version in Debian is 6, current one is 19 (I know stability over new features, but in this kind of cases the could probably upgrade non-core things like browsers, I think it's better and safer to upgrade a browser to a new version than to use an old version that has bugs that are already fixed in the new version) or Iceweasel 3.5 instead of Firefox 12... I guess it depends if your focus is servers or desktop users, if you want to serve desktop users that's not quite acceptable. Sure you can get newer stuff from other sources but that's beside the point.
Other than my thought was that I don't know why Warren bothers to make a Debian Live distro anymore...
i need to point out that this Debian Live distro is old. it was released over a year ago. Debian has not released a updated version yet & i do not think that they will until Wheezy becomes Stable. you really should not judge Debian just because of this old live cd.
if you are wanting to try a "testing" release of Debian, the best thing to do is ether create a partition on your HD, or install another HD, download the testing version Debian Netinstall, & use the KDE "Pre-Seed option at bootup. once installed, you will find that the software is more up-to-date.
