Happy Belayed B-day Debian!!!

Thursday, August 17, 2006

From the Debian website:
"On August 16th, 1993 Ian Murdock announced a new type of distribution and listed the goals he wanted to achieve. 13 years later the Debian community will celebrate this birthday around the world, http://wiki.debian.org/Debian13th
A lot has happened since Ian's first mail: The project is headed up by its ninth leader, and more than a thousand developers are registered to work voluntarily on one of the largest distributions of Free Software."
Debian is currently busy with the preparations of the next stable release called "Etch", which is planned for December 4th. Recently the first packages have been put in bugfix-only mode for this release already, and a beta of the installer has been published."

Note from the Nerd: Wow, has Debian really been around for 13 years already? Thats almost as old as I am! But seriously, happy birthday Debian (Although this is posted a day late), and kudos to all its developers! Debian is perhaps the epitome of the Linux operating system, and is the base for so many other distros, the people that made it really have something to be proud of!
