The problem is the length of the line.  If you skim the list, you see
"Debian", then you need to skip two words to get to the information you
seek next: which release is it, which in case of the number is a way
shorter word.

I have to admit, I'm not convinced, and others use it for more generic

Maybe something about:
1. About Debian; focus on community distribution
2. Something about the release
3. Something about the name? "Buster"
