I have read on many websites that Debian has the most number of packages than any other Linux distribution out there. Also as per Debian, there are 18000+ packages in Debian. This got me curious and I decided to query the total number of packages that are currently actually there in Debian.

I have to say that the above numbers are pretty impressive. Actually Debian is a very conservative distribution (and I like that) and hence it has mentioned 18000+ packages only as opposed to 23000+. Under promise, Over deliever. I dont think there is any other distribution which comes any where close to Debian in terms of packages that it has to offer.
