A quick reminder: Despite the fact that it’s still about eight hours to midnight where I am on August 15, in many parts of the world it’s already August 16, which is Debian’s birthday.
So raise a glass of whatever you’re drinking (whatever it may be) and wish one of the Linux pioneers a happy and hearty 20th birthday.
Without Debian, we would be without a lot of what we may take for granted in the Linux and FOSS realm. Of course, without Debian we wouldn’t have CrunchBang, too.
Here’s the message from Debian on the occasion.
Many happy returns of the day for the swirl.
Larry Cafiero is one of the founders of the Lindependence Project and has just started developing software at Redwood Digital Research (RDR), a consultancy that provides FOSS solutions in the small business and home office environment. RDR is based in Felton, California, USA.
