Welcome to Debian
This space is maintained by the Welcome Team, a group of current Debian users and developers wanting to help other aspiring or beginner Debian users.
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.
Take a look at https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian before attempting a new installation
To try Debian (and optionally, install it), you can boot from a Live CD (GNOME desktop): Debian 8.1 (stable, aka Jessie)
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.
