Description

Debian is a highly popular GNU/Linux distribution. It is different from commercial distributions, maintained by the open source community.

Its strength lies in its superior package management. With it, it is possible to update a running system over the internet. Hence it is secure and up-to-date without you being forced to buy a new version. One can choose between three trees: stable, testing and unstable. So it's up to oneself how stable or experimental one's own system is. Also Debian is available for 11 different hardware platforms.
