A good introduction to Debian is the Debian article at Wikipedia.

This document needs your feedback, it is under constant development so if you have any comments or suggestions please email them to inkwire [at] thegoldenear [dot] org and they can be considered.

A distribution is the operating system plus a number of software applications; there are many aspects differentiating distributions.

I recommend Debian in particular for these reasons: Debian Weekly News: Debian Planet: Debian (accumulation of Debian developers' blogs): planet.debian.org, Debian bug tracking system: The easiest means of downloading Debian is from get. There are various options of what to download, the most useful to choose from are Debian Stable is available to order on CD/DVD from various vendors, a list of them is available at

It applies most accurately to 32-bit x86 and 64-bit amd64 architectured computers; most of it but not all will apply to all Debian's supported architectures.

We also provide a menu driven command-line program, called Twix, to help you install most of what is covered in this document and configure some of it.

Twix can be downloaded for free from thegoldenear.org/toolbox/unices/twix/.

I try to stick closely to stock Debian, which means adding non-free but being very consertaive about installing software from outside Debian, which is to say that some is but not much.
