Buzz is the code name for a former Stable Debian distribution. It was released on June 17th, 1996 as Debian GNU/Linux 1.1. This was the first Debian release with a code name. It was taken, like all others so far, from a character in one of the Toy Story movies... in this case, Buzz Lightyear. By this time, Bruce Perens had taken over leadership of the Project from Ian Murdock, and Bruce was working at Pixar, the company that produced the movies. This release was fully ELF, used Linux kernel 2.0, and contained 474 packages.

It is now obsolete and security updates are no longer provided.

The next version was DebianRex (December 12th, 1996).
