More Debian Information
Debian, organized by the Debian Project, is a widely-used distribution of free software developed through the collaborative effort of volunteers from around the world. Since its inception, the released system, Debian GNU/Linux, has been based on the Linux kernel, but most of the basic tools come from the GNU project, hence the name GNU/Linux.
Debian is known for its adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies, and for its abundance of options — the current release includes over fifteen thousand software packages for eleven computer architectures, ranging from the ARM architecture commonly found in embedded systems and the IBM s390 mainframe architecture to the more common x86 and PowerPC architectures found in modern personal computers. Debian GNU/Linux is the basis for several other distributions, including Knoppix, Linspire and Ubuntu.
Debian is also known for its package management system, especially APT, for its strict policies regarding the quality of its packages and releases, and for its open development and testing process. These practices afford easy upgrades between releases without rebooting and easy automated installation and removal of packages.
