I do agree with this statement. Debian users that can get the TorBrowser
from Debian repositories should be able to do so.

Except that getting the Tor Browser in Debian requires quite some work.

Some people gathered to discuss praticalities of the Tor ecosystem in
Debian during the last DebConf. A summary of that discussion was sent on
the tor-dev@ mailing-list last july [1].

In case you want to do some actual work, you are welcome to try to
create a tor-browser package that would be compliant with the Debian
policy. Upstream ticket is #3994.
