Re: why aren't Debian AMIs eligible for the free tier on Amazon?

The AWS free tier provides:

  "750 hours of Amazon EC2 Linux/UNIX or RHEL† Micro Instance usage
   (613 MB of memory and 32-bit and 64-bit platform support) – enough
   hours to run continuously each month"

  "†The following Linux variants are not eligible for the free usage
   tier as a software license is required: SuSe Linux Enterprise Server"


You should be able to run any EBS boot AMI on a t1.micro under the free tier.

If you run something through the AWS Marketplace, there may be additional charges.

I'm new to using Amazon EC2, so sorry if this is a FAQ.  Why are there
a couple of Ubuntu Server images that qualify for the free plan, but
no Debian ones?  What would be required for there to be a
free-as-in-beer Debian option?
