The title says it all – Debian … the ultimate Linux!

 Go here for your distro.

My justification for making that statement is they remain non-conformers.

They stick to their guns offering a stable distro with unlimited possibilities. A simple distro can become a stable mail server or hosting server.

Using the KDE desktop package can offer an end-user a pleasurable plasma experience also with unlimited possibilities. Of course it doesn’t come easy with Debian – Debian forces the user to learn.

If you don’t know how to use a command terminal prompt, you will soon learn how.

But that’s something every Linux user should know how to do.

One of my desktops:






This is a notebook currently using Samba to access Windows shares; using webdav to share documents and images; using Apache server it could easily be used as a server – if it weren’t a notebook. The possibilities are endless with Debian, give it a try!

Their social contract states:

 Debian will remain 100% free

We provide the guidelines that we use to determine if a work is “free” in the document entitled “The Debian Free Software Guidelines”. We promise that the Debian system and all its components will be free according to these guidelines. We will support people who create or use both free and non-free works on Debian. We will never make the system require the use of a non-free component.
