This is very true.
Here is yet another attempt to fix this, loosely based on the Debian home
page...it is meant as few introductory paragraphs for the non-Linux
Debian is an operating system for your computer that comes complete with
the basic utilities you need to make your computer run, such as file
management, network utilities, web servers, etc. In addition, Debian
also includes advanced applications for manipulating data on the
"desktop", whether it is image manipulation, desktop publishing,
spreadsheet calculation, graph drawing, etc., and (of course) program
development in most known programming languages (including C, C++, Perl,
Common Lisp, Fortran, Pascal, and many more).
At the core is the Linux kernel, a free piece of software started by
Linus Torvalds and supported by (probably over 1000) programmers
worldwide. A large part of the basic tools that fill out the operating
system come from GNU, which are also free. This is the reason for the
name, "Debian GNU/Linux".
Debian has a strong tradition for stability (it has flown the US space
shuttle) which we continue in this new release.
