Zyxware Technologies is on cloud nine, as it gears up to celebrate the worldwide release of Debian 8 “Jessie” - the latest stable version of the well-known Debian distro. The much-awaited Debian GNU/Linux 8 (codename 'Jessie') computer operating system is slated for release on Saturday, April 25, 2015. This is in fact a wonderful news for Debian fans, as the new operating system brings with it an array of fascinating features, up-to-date Linux technologies, and core components.

The occasion also acts an opportunity to promote free software, build awareness among our people on the philosophy of Debian (Debian Manifesto and Debian Free Software Guidelines), and to introduce the SDLC practices followed by the Debian Project to the various teams in the organization.
