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.

I remember reading a review when mint first got released, it seemed interesting and looks like it's matured a lot.

I've been looking for a system to install on my parent's machine and this sounds perfect - Thanks for the link would never have remembered without it.

Personally I do like playing around with my Linux box, and I don't mind spending a bit of time getting things set up so I think I'll stick with Arch for now.

The main advantage it has over Debian for me is the rolling release system, I get a pretty stable up to date system with very little effort and when it does occasionally break things I get an excuse to be geeky for a bit. Win Win in my book.
