Duke of URL: Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 Review

[ Thanks to Patrick

“This is Linux. Open source and completely staffed by
volunteers. Many find it hard to believe that such a project could
ever be successful. In fact, many people are saying it hasn’t been
entirely successful-but Linus thinks so. After all, he’s the one
who awarded them the $20,000 at Linux World this year.”

“Right before Linux World, in fact, Debian reached a milestone,
Potato, or 2.2. Immediately after that, a couple distributions
started using the 2.2 kernel, including such popular ones as
Stormix’s Storm Linux 2000, which I reviewed last month, as well as
Corel Linux (which I haven’t got around to reviewing) and Libranet
Linux.”

“A lot of people absolutely love Debian, and what’s not to like?
Their package system isn’t bested by anybody out there. It features
the option to go out and actually fetch needed libraries-I’d like
to see RPM do that! As you can see, Debian may seem difficult
to work with at first, but a well-configured system will reward you
greatly.
