What is Debian?

                           Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating system is the set of
                           basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the
                           core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project;
                           hence the name GNU/Linux. 

                           Debian GNU/Linux provides more than a pure OS: it comes with more than 3950 packages,
                           precompiled software bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine.
