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 and contributors.
First time around
Install Debian: click on the "Download Debian" button in the upper right side of https://www.debian.org . It will download an ISO image 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/DVD/USB
We have many different channels for user support, just ask using your preferred method.
