"Progeny Linux Systems, Inc. announces the release of the first edition of Progeny Debian. The download edition is available now. The box set will be available on April 23rd."

"Progeny Debian was developed in cooperation with Debian GNU/Linux, a popular Linux distribution developed by more than 600 volunteers and regarded as having the most innovative software management technology available. The advantages of using a Debian-based operating system include the ability to upgrade mission critical systems without rebooting, installation of software with a single command, and a network-based software manager. Debian was founded by Ian Murdock, President and CEO of Progeny Linux Systems. The company includes a number of leading Debian developers who are led by CTO John H. Hartman, a prominent expert in operating systems."

"Progeny Debian provides an enhanced feature set that includes easy graphical installation, hardware detection support, and improved configuration and management tools. Also included is the latest stable technology, consisting of XFree86 4.0.2 and glibc2.2. Other additions include improved USB support and an auto-install feature for streamlining multiple installations."
