Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Ham. Slink. Potato. Woody. No, you aren't watching "Toy Story".
You've encountered the lineage of Debian distributions. Whether
your aim is to expel the evil operating system Zurg from your
computer, or find a way to peacefully co-exist with it, you'll find
that the current stable release of Debian, aka Potato, is the
easiest Debian to work with yet."
"Traditionally Debian and Red Hat have contrasted as Linux
distributions: Red Hat is reputed to be easier to install, while
Debian is reputed to be easier to maintain and upgrade once
installed. While that distinction still holds true, Debian is now
much easier to install."
"We aren't going to take you through all the intricacies of
Debian in this article. What we are going to do is show you how to
set up a dual boot machine that will enable you to run either
Windows or Debian GNU/Linux, and we're going to show you how
to do the kind of simple install a beginner would want to play
around with Linux and get a feel for how the system works."
