"The debian gnu/linux system is probably the best system for
those people that like to know what is going on with their
computer. Let me tell you about how Debian can keep your
computer up to date with all the latest software
"Typically, when you run Linux, you have to upgrade the system
yourself. You have to identify those packages that have been
updated (which happens often with some packages) and then you have
to go to an ftp site or something similiar and do the old download
and install. There is nothing wrong with that but is that really
realistic for all your time? It would take a long time to do what I
did today with Debian on automatic."
"In Debian there is a tool called apt, which stands for A
Package Tool. And that is exactly what it is. After fooling around
with trying to update packages by running a package installer on
single packages at a time I figured that I would give this
oft-praised apt tool a ride. It worked so well that I am sitting
here with an updated debian slink distribution."
