Debian

Last Update: 2022-08-15 06:21 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: 7 (1,154), 6 months: 8 (1,040), 3 months: 8 (969), 4 weeks: 8 (892), 1 week: 9 (858)

Average visitor rating: 8.79/10 from 668 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • 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.

Great distro. We have been running in it enterprise for many years. We have servers that originally started out at lenny (5.) and we kept upgrading them to new LTS as the LTS matures. Usually 6 months after LTS release. Looking forward to migrating to the new LTS as it arrives.

Most used apps are apache, sql, mongo, and php. Some instances of storage also used.

We use Debian in conjunction with Ubuntu on some other servers. Most servers are Dell x64 and some HP.

I would like to see more security communication from the team.

I'm running Debian unstable, after years of bouncing between Ubuntu LTS and Debian Stable, I decided i didn't care for the whole snap thing. I wanted something that had newer software, but felt like Debian, so i picked Sid, and it's been pretty good. Subjectively as stable as Ubuntu, i see no downsides. That being said i am more than capable of fixing any issues that come up, so ymmv. It's fast, looks, smells and sounds like Debian. I run XFCE as my desktop, on an Intel Xeon e5-2680 with 32G ram.

I've been using Debian stable for over a year now, and I haven't had any problems. It's a robust system that won't let you down.

Sure, the software is quite old, but it's also well tested. Nevertheless, when I needed to have the latest version of LibreOffice, the backports repositories did the job perfectly. I'm currently running with version 7.3.5.2 without having to fiddle for hours.

In short, I was skeptical when I switched from Manjaro to Debian, but finally, I don't regret my choice. Debian requires very little maintenance. Updates can be done with your eyes closed, when you reboot, it will always be there.
