"3. The DFSG
Maybe this doesn't say much just when you see it, but Debian has
been around since 1993 and it still is as it was. Although the
social contract changed a little over the years, it still retained
it's originality. It's open, it's free, it follows the GPL
entirely, it respects the community needs.
" 4. Debian is one of the oldest distributions
Although this doesn't necessarily make you wise, take a look at
Debian: it's been up for over 15 years and there are a lot of
distributions out there who take and eventually expand Debian's
work, take Ubuntu or DSL for example."
