Starting points

First time around

Try or Install Debian

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, specially how to create such media in other operating systems, are available on the FAQ.

  • To try Debian (and optionally, install it), you can boot from a Live CD (GNOME desktop): Debian 6 (stable, aka Squeeze) / Debian 7 (testing, aka Wheezy)

  • More experienced users may want to create a custom LiveCD with the Debian Web Live CD generator or 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.

Ubuntu

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. Well, Utnubu is about the reverse, copying packages from Ubuntu to Debian.
