A New Stable Release of Debian
by Larry Ayers

In 1993 Ian Murdock created the Debian Linux distribution, initially under 
the auspices of the Free Software Foundation's GNU project. Although the 
direct connection with FSF/GNU is a thing of the past, Debian is still the 
only major distribution which is not connected with a commercial entity and 
which is maintained solely by a loosely-knit band of volunteers. The 
parallels with Linux itself make this distribution appealing to Linux users 
who value the ideals of the free-software world, including those who may 
disagree with the purist views of the FSF.
