About Debian

Debian is also known as Debian GNU/Linux is a Linux distribution composed of free and open-source software, developed by the community-supported Debian Project, which was established by Ian Murdock on August 16, 1993.

There are many operating systems that branch off of Unix, that use Linux as their main core to establish their general projects. These operating systems can be maintained and developed by individuals, teams, communities, or corporations, and they can release them at any pricing structure or entirely for free for any user to be able to download.

Linux Debian fits the classification of entirely free material. Debian is an organization composed of different collaborators and programmers around the world, and their most developed operating system is Debian GNU/Linux, which is what we are discussing here. Debian is an organization that boasts only free software, with organizations like the Free Software Foundation (FSF) representing and backing them up.

Linux Debian as a system is extremely powerful and even beloved within the community. Many praise its ease of use and how extremely stable it is. Debian was famously hard to install in its beginning, but in reality, it could not be simpler nowadays with their great thorough and comprehensive installer. Debian also comes with (literally) tens of thousands of packages. Any package you would like that is not extremely recent is likely already within Debian for you to freely use. Intermediate to advanced Linux users loves this particular operating system because it is extremely secure and stable, as we have mentioned before.

There are some very interesting facts about Linux Debian, maybe it can even convince you to check it out and try it on your computer. First, it is important to know that Debian is slightly more complicated than other Unix operating systems, and you might want to consider looking into something a little bit more friendly, but it compensates with its incredible capabilities. Debian is light on the resource usage department, making it very good to use with older computers which still look to have a very functional and stable operating system.

You should consider that Debian comes with only free software and packages. Adding new paid ones can be worth it, but it does take effort to add it to the repository, and other operating systems can do it better and faster.


Debian is currently on the codenamed “Buster” stable release, which is the tenth iteration of the operating system. The next release is already codenamed “Bullseye”, and has no set release date yet, but it is confirmed to be under development and we can expect it relatively soon.
