Hi, I'm a developer with the Debian project. Only an 'ordinary' one,
however - if you'd like to speak with someone more important, try
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your interest, first of all.
If you don't know much about the Debian project, we are a group of
some 500 developers who put together a Linux distribution comprised of
free software. Although we don't get as much press as Redhat, we are

stability, security and high quality. We also support the most

i386, m68k, ppc, sparc and ultrasparc (although not all of these have
been release as 'stable'). Our mips port is in its early stages, but
moving along quickly due to the efforts of a few dedicated

A donation of equipment would certainly be appreciated. Debian's MIPS

available for developers who do not have MIPS boxes of their own.
I thank you for your interest and time,
