Maybe better: "The dpkg+apt packaging system, which has proven its value since

Another thing to brag about: you can upgrade from _any_ previous Debian
release directly to 2.2, "which hasn't been seen on any OS before".
Well, up to (or better down to) 1.3.1->2.2 has been tested successfully, and I
don't think anyone is still running <1.3.1 ;-) (But if the kernel has ELF
support, it should still work.)
 Ok, not supported. But we don't have _any_ support contracts, do we?
