The Debian project has been debating whether the official Debian install media should include non-free firmware, bits of code required to make some hardware work. Up to this point Debian has provided two sets of install media: the official media without non-free components which often would not work with certain wireless cards and other key devices, and unofficial media which included the necessary code. Following a debate and vote on the subject it looks a though future versions of Debian will allow non-free firmware to be installed as needed from the official media.
