Debian and its clones A few months later than expected, Debian 5 has finally arrived with a bundle of new goodies: Java is finally in the Debian repositories thanks to IcedTea and OpenJDK; Firefox (rebranded as Iceweasel) is now at 3.0; and official live images are ready for our downloading pleasure. TuxRadar has a detailed look at Lenny along with an explanation from Steve McIntyre, the Debian Project Leader, on why it was delayed. Earlier this week, we already detailed the new features in Lenny.

All these things work fine for me and I have five computers in my house running lenny for over a year now!

And you know what? It cost me nothing and does everything I and my kids want for school.

Sure some school stuff was windows only, but I just wrote the principle and told him to change his Luddite attitude and move his kids into the 20th century and now there's no problem. Take control of your life, freedoms, destiny and stop expecting everyone to do everything for you!

A big and sincere Thankyou to all involved with Debian and linux in general, we know the battle is hard and you keep coming through for us year after year. Great jobs guys and gals!
