Why Debian matters more than ever (NetworkWorld)
Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier looks
at the relevance
of Debian. "Debian is the raw material that is used to create Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and dozens of other Linux distributions that look more modern and easier to use. However, the reason that Ubuntu and the rest are able to ship fancified Linux distros that are easier to use is because they're able to start with Debian. If the Debian Project ceased tomorrow, it would be an enormous — possibly fatal — blow to its derivatives.
