First time around

Try or Install Debian

Debian 9 ("Stretch") is the current stable version, released on June 17th, 2017. See the announcement, the blog post, the installation guide and the release notes.

The following files are ISO images which can be used to make a bootable CD or USB key used to start your system with. More details about this, especially how to create such media in other operating systems, are available on the FAQ.

  • Take a look at DontBreakDebian page in the wiki before attempting a new installation

  • To try Debian (and optionally, install it), you can boot from a Live CD (GNOME desktop): Debian 9.0.1 (stable, aka Stretch)

  • More experienced users may want to download other versions, types and sizes of installers (including installers for older computers, network-based, servers, etc.).

Find out more about Debian releases, including community support cycles, release/End-of-Life dates, repositories, etc.

Joining the Debian Community

Expats, welcome

Eventually each distribution's section would move to a page under /Welcome, as content is augmented/improved.


Developer resources

  • Debian derivatives front-desk

  • Utnubu (inactive) is Ubuntu spelled backwards. One of Ubuntu's activities is frequently redistributing packages originally from Debian to Ubuntu's users. Utnubu was about the reverse, copying packages from Ubuntu to Debian.
