Help with CD cover text for Space Fun
The CD cover text of "Space fun" may need a bit of polishing.
I send you some text from the backside cover of my DVD draft. Of
yourse you won't get everything on the CD cover, which is smaller. You
may have to choose between "About debian" or "About this release". The
latter should be checked again, when the Squeeze release notes are out.
Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system, developed by more than a
thousand volunteers from all over the world who collaborate via the
Internet. Debian's dedication to Free Software, its non-profit nature,
and its open development model make it unique among GNU/Linux
The Debian project's key strengths are its volunteer base, its
dedication to the Debian Social Contract, and its commitment to
provide the best operating system possible. Debian 6.0 is another
important step in that direction.
About this release
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 features a Linux 2.6.32 kernel as its default in
the installer and on all Linux architectures. For Desktop
environments, Debian 6 comes with KDE 4.4.5, Gnome 2.30.0 (with some
pieces of GNOME 2.32), LXDE 0.5.0 and XFCE 4.6.2, all backed up with
X.org 7.5. Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 includes stable and current versions
of common server software such as Apache 2.2.16, PHP 5.3.2, MySQL
5.1.48, PostgreSQL 8.4.4 and Samba 3.4. It comes with modern
interpreters and compilers for all common languages such as Python 2.6
and 3.1, Perl 5.10, GHC 6.12 and GCC 4.4.
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 is accompanied by variants based on the FreeBSD
kernel for amd64 and i386 machines, together with the GNU libc and
userland as a "technology preview". This extends the features of
Linux-based Debian versions by the unique features known from the BSD
world. It is the first time a GNU/Linux distribution has been extended
to also allow use of a non-Linux kernel.
