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.

Interesting in this context is the experience when DistroWatch switched from FreeBSD to Debian in September 2007 after a DDoS attack. http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20070924#sitenews
Debian was way faster to install and set up which was important to get the site back online, but regenerating the hit rankings every evening with a cron job took 40 minutes on FreeBSD and 130 mins. with Debian 4.0.
