| subsequent years, Debian wan innovative. It was one of the first 
| distributions to introduce package management that resolves dependencies, and

| FreeBSD and NetBSD kernels, albeit still very much in alpha stage currently, 
| make it a universal operating system. Nevermind the fact that it is compiled 
| for fifteen CPU architectures, and has over 20,000 packages. Lastly, it’s 
| core philosophy or removing all firmwares and non-free software from the core 
| operating system make it a viable operating system for GNU.

| mention briefly...
