Tanglu Logo

Tanglu is a Debian derivative aimed at providing more frequent releases then Debian and being targetted at Desktop users. It's goal is to be used together with Debian, where Debian runs on servers and Tanglu on desktops. Tanglu can be used to test new upstream software while Debian is in freeze.

In short, you can think of Tanglu as a community-maintained Ubuntu.
