The DukeOfURL says Progeny Debian 1.0 is fast, stable, and excellent for users and administrators interested in hands-on management of their machine. On the downside, not all the packages are the most current (the KDE version shipping is 2.0) and automated/integrated security management is lagging.
"Progeny Debian is the commercial version of Debian GNU/Linux. Progeny's CEO and President, Ian Murdock, is the founder of Debian GNU/Linux. Debian is well known for its quality, superior packaging system, and the Debian Social Contract. It has been said that Debian is often the choice of the experienced Linux user and there is probably some truth to that. The releases are slow, favoring stability over the bleeding edge in Linux. Another benefit for experienced users is that Debian puts control over the system in the system administrator's hands. Often the administration is done the old fashioned way - with a text editor.Complete Story - 8 Pages
