The Debian community is pleased to celebrate its 19th birthday since Ian Murdock's original founding announcement. Quoting from the official project history:
The Debian Project was officially founded by Ian Murdock on August 16th, 1993. At that time, the whole concept of a 'distribution' of Linux was new. Ian intended Debian to be a distribution which would be made openly, in the spirit of Linux and GNU.
