Debian is a computer operating system composed entirely of free and open source software. The primary form, Debian GNU/Linux, is a popular and influential Linux distribution. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux. (Source www.debian.org) . Debian is known for strict adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies as well as using open development and testing processes. Debian can be used as a desktop as well as server operating system.
Many distributions are based on Debian, including the much popular Ubuntu, MEPIS, Dreamlinux, Damn Small Linux, Xandros, Knoppix, Linspire, sidux, Kanotix, and LinEx, among others. Debian Project is an independent decentralised organization; it is not backed by a company like other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora, and Mandriva.
Debian is developed by over one thousand volunteers from around the world.
