Debian and its clones Oh glorious day! After two years of development, one of the prime Linux distributions has pushed out a new release - Debian 6.0 'Squeeze' has been released. The most fascinating aspect fo this new release is that it includes Debian/kFreeBSD s a technology preview, which fascinates me to no end. Of course, there's a whole lot more, including a brand new website for the project - the first major redesign in 13 years.

Debian is a winner

One of the best things (along with software freedom, support for several processor architectures, and the large collection of packaged software) in Debian is reliability. If you get your Debian installation working, it just keeps on working, so you can concentrate on actually doing some stuff with your computer instead of worrying if the next software update will introduce some new exciting bugs.

Thanks to its reliability, Debian is currently perhaps the most popular GNU/Linux distro for servers:
