"I like the fact that it's not backed by any commercial entity
and sticks closely to it’s Free Software principals. After
some delay version 5.0 Lenny was finally released this
Valentine’s Day, how appropriate but would it still be true
love? There was only one way to find out...
"I downloaded the Lenny net install CD image, my prefered
installation method with Debian. I find it a bit wasteful to burn 3
full DVDs and then only use one of them. There’s some merit
in having everything downloaded before you start but if you've got
a reasonably fast and stable Internet connection I recommend the
network install personally. I was fortunate enough to have a chat
with Steve McIntyre (the current Debian Project Leader) on a recent
episode of Linux Outlaws where he told us there are even Blu-ray
images available now with everything on one disc. That sounds
amazing but not having the small fortune it requires to purchase a
Blu-ray burner at the moment it wasn't an option for me sadly."
