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.

can you do it better?

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).

Your avatar is simply unfair. How can I even presume to stand up to Spock in his prime, in "The Undiscovered Country"?

I've no choice but to concede, darn it! ;-)

All of it bug-free? All of it, every single possible usage scenario, with every conceivable combination of hardware and software? I highly doubt it. It may be mostly bug-free, but nothing is ever 100%, completely, utterly bug-free. Never. Never has been, never will be.
