<<TableOfContents>>

Much of why Debian is a strong Linux distribution comes from its package management. Everything in Debian – every application, every component – everything – is built into a package, and then that package is installed onto your system (either by the Installer, or by you).

There are over [[https://packages.debian.org/stable/|51 000 software packages]] available for Debian – everything from the Linux kernel to games.
