Thankyou, Debian

Debian is awesome. You know that, I know that, we all know that, and 17 years ago Debian entered into our lives. Before I joined the Ubuntu project I was an avid Debian user, and still am. Ubuntu owes a huge amount of thanks to Debian and it’s global family of contributors for all of their incredible work.

Thankyou, Debian, and long may you prosper! :-)

    The core of so many distro, and the spirit of free software. Choice of not just what architecture, but also of what kernel. Gotta love it :)

    last line: “long may your prosper” should be “long may you prosper”

    When I first made the plunge into Free software, I got excited to try Redhat…only I wasn’t in free software to pay for it. I’m a freetard who thinks software, like math, should have no price for everyone. It’s not that I’m cheap, it’s that I know what it’s like to live without privilege, and for billions of people on the planet, $10 is more than they can afford.

    I wanted free software that was both libre and beer. Then I found Debian. My computing life has never been the same.

    Thank you Debian developers. You truly make a difference.

    There’s even a GNU Hurd port somewhere…
