Updated Debian GNU/Linux Distribution

,----[ Quote ]
| I just noticed that there is an updated 
| distribution of the Debian GNU/Linux stable 
| branch, lenny 5.0.4. As noted in the press 
| release, this release is primarily security 
| updates and a few serious problem fixes. If 
| you are running Debian lenny and have been 
| keeping up to date with the official updates, 
| you don't need to reinstall, the purpose of 
| this distribution is simply to consolidate all 
| the latest updates into a single installable 
| distribution.


My Debian Adventure 3: Squeeze & KDE4

,----[ Quote ]
| This story is all about that experience and my 
| personal opinions about that experience. I do 
| not attempt to make any generalizations about 
| KDE4 in general; in fact, I've read many good 
| things about KDE4, written by people who were 
| using other Linux distros instead of Debian. 
| So any problems that I describe and any 
| opinions that I express are limited strictly 
| to the current 64-bit, AMD64 Debian Squeeze 
| (Testing) and the way that it currently 
| installs and configures KDE 4.3.4, ext4 and 
| grub2 (grub-pc).



Debian 6.0 Squeeze behind schedule

,----[ Quote ]
| The Debian release team are sounding the
| alarm: With only one month left before the
| planned release freeze, the number of
| critical bugs in Debian 6.0 Squeeze is still
| far too high to freeze development and create
| the next stable version of Debian. As a
| result, it has become unlikely that Squeeze
| will be released this summer as scheduled.


Why debian rocks

,----[ Quote ]
| It has been quite some time, actually
| years, since I started using Debian.
| Earlier I have used various flavors of
| Linux like SuSE, Red Hat, RHEL, Fedora,
| Ubuntoo but my experience with Debian has
| been so far the best. I just thought to
| write the reasons for which I really like
| Debian compared to other systems.

| Debian is available for a variety of
| architectures and platforms, which further
| increases the user base as well as the
| support base. Ports of debian exist for
| most common architectures like ARM, MIPS,
| PPC, x86, x86_64 etc. There are variety of
| GNU/Linux distribution which are Debian
| based, most notable of them is Ubuntoo,
| which further increases the support and
| user base.


Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 updated

| The Debian project is pleased to announce
| the fourth update of its stable
| distribution Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (codename
| "lenny"). This update mainly adds
| corrections for security problems to the
| stable release, along with a few
| adjustments for serious problems.
