Debian 6 review

Filed under
Linux

Debian 6.0, aka Debian “Squeeze”, is the latest stable release of Debian. It was made available for download earlier this month. In Debian country, a major release of this sort is a once-in-a-very-long-time event, unlike other distributions where it happens at least twice a year.

Installation: The Debian Installer is one of the most versatile you are ever going to find on any Linux distribution. It has an ncurses mode, a text-based mode, and a fully graphical installation mode. And there are Live media installation images, regular installation images, and netinst images.
