    Debian contains so many cd's cos it has so many softwares bundled via cd. It is more feasible for those who do not have a broadband connection or no connection at all.
    I guess you've never understood about linux. It is just a 400 kb or so kernel. And what makes it an OS is whatever GNU/non-GNU software you add to it. So, no debian is not that huge. It's just that debian contains more Open Source packages bundled right in the cd as compared to any other distro out there.

    You will be able to use GUI. What do you mean by all. There's no distro that gives all GUI tools. There always has to be something or other that has to be left out. But, yes the system will be usable with GUI.
