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.

When I saw your avatar, I couldn't help but think that that woman had just found out the version of GLIBC included. :-0

I'd guess she's a RedHat fan who was shocked to find out that Debian 5.0 ships with glibc 2.7 while RHEL 5.3 (released in 2009-01-20) only includes glibc 2.5. ;)

By myself? No. Do other distros manage to do it better? Yes.

Not many distros, however, manage to offer over 23,000 packages, 5 DVDs, supporting 12 architectures! (And everything stable and bug-free).
