As Linux distributions go, there is little arguing that Debian GNU/Linux is a very special project. But what made it such an important and exciting distribution? Erich Schubert, a Debian developer, has written an interesting blog post highlighting the past achievements of Debian, but also pointing out some of the project's drawbacks as compared to other modern Linux distributions: “Debian used to be the cool kid among Linux distributions. Because our stuff worked much better, was easy to install and especially to upgrade. Dependencies would be automatically resolved while others were fighting dependency chaos, and our menus would have all the applications in it, where others had to fill their menus on their own. … Many of these Debian achievements are now common among distributions.”
