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


Ubuntu Server: Interview with the team leader has interviewed Fabio Massimo Di Nitto about himself, the Ubuntu server project and it's relevance.
The interview is here


Why should a system administrator switch from RedHat, Suse or Debian to Ubuntu server?

Fabio Massimo Di Nitto: It's very hard to answer without unleashing a distro-war :) and one answer will never cover all possible aspects … As leader of the Ubuntu server project I can tell you that:

- Ubuntu Dapper Server will be released on the 20th of April 2006 and will be supported for 5 years. 5 years of updates (security included) without spending one euro.

- all users can interact directly with us. Mark is often on IRC as are all Ubuntu developers (me included) and the community that has formed around Ubuntu.

- our wikis/processes/forums/mailinglists are all public and freely accessible.

- the quality of the packages is already very high, and it will get better before dapper's release.
