Debian

Last Update: 2019-08-17 06:20 UTC


The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system is called Debian. Debian systems currently use the Linux kernel. Linux is a completely free piece of software started by Linus Torvalds and supported by thousands of programmers worldwide. Of course, the thing that people want is application software: programs to help them get what they want to do done, from editing documents to running a business to playing games to writing more software. Debian comes with over 50,000 packages (precompiled software that is bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine) - all of it free. It's a bit like a tower. At the base is the kernel. On top of that are all the basic tools. Next is all the software that you run on the computer. At the top of the tower is Debian -- carefully organizing and fitting everything so it all works together.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 6 (1,306), 6 months: 5 (1,431), 3 months: 4 (1,560), 4 weeks: 4 (1,399), 1 week: 4 (1,421)

Average visitor rating: 8.57/10 from 545 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Tried the new LXQt image. Liked the fact that Calamares is the installer, but had issues with screen tearing.

Pros:
- It's the most stable and reliable distribution I've ever used. Though I'm in testing channel, it works fine as usual. That's great!
- Easy package management.
- A large and helpful community.
Cons:
- It won't install some drivers during installation, even if they're open-sourced. However, they can be easily installed after installation.
- Lack of BtrFS subvolume support.

If you are new to Linux and want to find a distribution to try, Debian (stable version) is for you!
