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.

Starting points

First time around

Try or Install Debian

Debian 8 ("Jessie") is the current version, released on Saturday April 25th, 2015. See the announcement, blog post and installation guide and 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, specially how to create such media in other operating systems, are available on the FAQ.

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.
