"Why should people care about Debian? Why indeed?
"The current leader of the Debian GNU/Linux project, Stefano
Zacchiroli (pictured below, left), posed the question with a little
more force - Why the bloody hell should you care about Debian? - in
a talk at the 12th Australian national Linux conference today.
"Zacchiroli outlined the uniqueness of Debian - it was a
non-commercial distribution that was able to compete with other
commercial distros, it was built collaboratively by experts and was
the first major distribution to be developed exclusively in the
spirit of the GNU project."
