Debian Derivatives

Debian "derivative" is a colloquial term used to refer to distributions which are based on Debian in various ways.

A common, but not unique pattern for derivatives is that of reusing/rebuilding most of the official Debian packages and adding some custom packages of their own.

According to distrowatch, Debian has already spawned more than 300 derivatives and more than 140 of them are still active.
