"The goal of the Embedded Debian Project is to make Debian GNU/Linux a natural choice for embedded Linux."

"Debian's open development process, reputation for reliability and security, powerful package manager, and wide and growing range of supported architectures provide a solid technical foundation for the realization of this goal. We believe that Debian GNU/Linux is the best place to concentrate embedded Linux development in such a way as to create an embeddable Linux distribution that:

  • Scales well from very large systems (O(100) megabytes) down to very small systems (O(1) megabyte), i.e. from the desktop down to the settop
  • Is supported on a wide range of platforms
  • Integrates embedded Linux related software from a variety of sources (i.e. other distributions, projects)
  • Is dynamic and does not suffer from software rot over time"
