== Starting points ==

=== First time around ===
 * [[http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/project-history/ch-intro.en.html#s1.2|What is Debian?]]
 * Keep up with the latest news quickly with [[http://www.debian.org/News/weekly|Debian Project News]]. [[http://bits.debian.org/|Bits from Debian]] is the official blog where news are frequently posted in English.
 * Ask your questions and check the beginners guides on the [[http://ask.debian.net|Debian Q&A site]] or on [[http://forums.debian.net/|the Debian forums]]
 * '''More experienced users''' may prefer going directly to one of the numerous [[http://lists.debian.org/|mailing lists]]. [[http://lists.debian.org/users.html|Debian-user-* lists]] are normally used for technical help in specific languages.

=== Try or Install Debian ===
Debian 8 ("Jessie") is the current version, released on Saturday April 25th, 2015. See [[https://www.debian.org/News/2015/20150426.html|the announcement]], [[https://bits.debian.org/2015/04/jessie-released.html|blog post]] and [[https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/installmanual|installation guide]] and [[https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/releasenotes|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 [[http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/|the FAQ]].

 * Take a look at [[https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian|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): [[http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current-live/i386/iso-hybrid/debian-live-8.1.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso|Debian 8.1]] (stable, aka Jessie)
 * '''More experienced users''' may want to create a custom LiveCD with the [[http://live-build-cgi.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.

== Joining the Debian Community ==

 * Read [[http://www.debian.org/social_contract|The Debian Social Contract]]
 * [[DebianWiki/EditorQuickStart#Account|Create your home page on the wiki]]
 * Check [[DebianWiki/Content#writing-style|the wiki content writing style guidelines]] before contributing content
  * Check [[DebianWiki/EditorGuide#Screenshots|the Screenshots section in the Editor Guide]] before contributing screenshots

== Expats, welcome ==
Eventually each distribution's section would move to a page under /Welcome, as content is augmented/improved.

=== Ubuntu ===

 * See [[Ubuntu]]
 * '''[[IRC|IRC]]''':
  * [[irc://irc.oftc.net/debian-ubuntu|#debian-ubuntu on OFTC]]
  * [[irc://irc.oftc.net/ubuntu-expats|#ubuntu-expats on OFTC]]

== Developer resources ==
 * [[DerivativesFrontDesk|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.
