 * [http://packages.debian.org/unstable/doc/diploma diploma] Write scientific papers with Debian - Debian GNU/Linux is widely used at universities to do research and to write papers with LaTeX. The package diploma contains examples which illustrate the possible ways to do this effectively with Debian GNU/Linux.
