Starting points

Try / Install Debian

  • Boot a 64-bit Live CD and installer (GNOME desktop): Debian 6 (stable, aka Squeeze) / Debian 7 (testing, aka Wheezy)

  • If your computer does not support 64 bit, you will need to use a 32 bit ISO instead.
    • Other versions, types and sizes of installers (including 32 bit, netinstallers, etc.) are available.

    • or get a multi-arch (32 and 64 bit) installer ISO now: Debian 6 / Debian 7

  • Find out more about http://www.debian.org/releases/, including community support cycles, release/EOL dates, repositories, etc.

First time around

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