"In Debian, quality is the focus of everyone's attention. But those who work on the Debian system know that great software is worth nothing without Freedom." by Karsten Gerloff, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe
The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly free community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of the largest and most influential open source projects. Thousands of volunteers from all over the world work together to create and maintain Debian software. Available in 70 languages, and supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
universal operating system.
