Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.


"Take Your Pick of the Debian Litter"

A small article discuss why there are so many (good) Debian-based distributions and why Debian is a strong distribution. They go through Libranet, Xandros, Linspire and mention Ubuntu as well.
Read it at enterpriseworkingplanet:

If you haven't tried Debian, or tried it and got frustrated, I encourage you to give it another look. In my not-very-humble opinion, it has a number of strengths over RPM-based systems:

* Superior package management and quality control
* Runs on more hardware architectures than any other Linux
* Translated into more languages than any other Linux
* Separates Free and Non-Free packages into separate archives, giving users easy selection control
* Largest official package archives (currently over 15,000)
* You can upgrade a Debian system continuously and indefinitely, without ever needing to reformat and reinstall
