Happy 30th Birthday, Debian!

Debian, one of the earliest Linux distributions, is celebrating 30 years!

Debian Day, which happens every year on August 16th, is special today. Throughout multiple locations worldwide, Debian users and developers can come together and celebrate.

30 years Debian Linux

What started as a small Linux project from the late Ian Murdoch (The name "Debian" is a merger between the name from Ian's back then girlfriend DEBorah and his own name IAN) has become a long-living, successful and free Linux distribution. As of now, 1000 members are maintaining the Debian project.

Also from our side, a happy birthday to the Debian project – and kudos to the project team and all Debian developers for working on this project, a great example of an open source software project.
