This is very true.

Here is yet another attempt to fix this, loosely based on the Debian home
page...it is meant as few introductory paragraphs for the non-Linux

  Debian is an operating system for your computer that comes complete with
  the basic utilities you need to make your computer run, such as file
  management, network utilities, web servers, etc.  In addition, Debian
  also includes advanced applications for manipulating data on the
  "desktop", whether it is image manipulation, desktop publishing,
  spreadsheet calculation, graph drawing, etc., and (of course) program
  development in most known programming languages (including C, C++, Perl,
  Common Lisp, Fortran, Pascal, and many more).

  At the core is the Linux kernel, a free piece of software started by
  Linus Torvalds and supported by (probably over 1000) programmers
  worldwide.  A large part of the basic tools that fill out the operating
  system come from GNU, which are also free.  This is the reason for the
  name, "Debian GNU/Linux".

  Debian has a strong tradition for stability (it has flown the US space
  shuttle) which we continue in this new release.
