 * To '''try''' Debian (and optionally, install it), you can boot from a Live CD (GNOME desktop): [[http://live.debian.net/cdimage/release/7.0.0/i386/iso-hybrid/debian-live-7.0.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso|Debian 7]] (stable, aka Wheezy)
 * '''More experienced users''' may want to create a custom LiveCD with the [[http://live-build.debian.net/cgi-bin/live-build|Debian Web Live CD generator]] or download [[http://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/|other versions]], types and sizes of installers (including installers for older computers, network-based, servers, etc.).

Find out more about [[http://www.debian.org/releases/|Debian releases]], including community support cycles, release/End-of-Life dates, repositories, etc.
