I first got into linux through ubuntu but ubuntu grew into more than i needed and started becoming less and less lightweight. I then switched to xubuntu but i still felt i was getting more than i wanted. I found debian becase i knew that ubuntu was based apon it, i tried it out and i fell in love. With debian i get what i want and nothing more. I am currently looking for ways to get involved with the debian project so let me know if there is anything i can help with.
chilled_ @ irc.debian.org on #debian-devel or #debian.
