Setting up a Debian base-system

For most of my Linux projects, and a lot of the tutorials on this site, I fire up a virtual machine on Hyper-V and load up a minimal Debian system. Working with a Debian system gives me a stable, clean, platform I can easily customize as needed. Plus, there are numerous programs available for Debian but comparatively few are installed by default, so I get just what I need without any additional clutter. This exact base setup is what I use for my projects and what most of the Linux examples on this site are based upon, so I thought I’d give you a quick walkthrough of how to get the same setup.
