Extended Information:

Debian GNU/Linux is

  • full featured: Debian includes more than 1500 software packages at present. Users can select which packages to install; Debian provides a tool for this purpose. You can find a list and descriptions of the packages currently available in Debian at any of the Debian mirror sites.
  • free to use and redistribute: There is no consortium membership or payment required to participate in its distribution and development. All packages that are formally part of Debian GNU/Linux are free to redistribute, usually under terms specified by the GNU General Public License. The Debian FTP archives also carry approximately 300 software packages (in the non-free and contrib directories at the FTP archives), which are distributable under specific terms included with each package.
  • dynamic: With about 300 volunteers constantly contributing new and improved code, Debian is evolving rapidly. New releases are planned to be made every several months, and the FTP archives are updated daily.

Though Debian itself is free software, it is a base upon which value-added Linux distributions can be built. By providing a reliable, full-featured base system, Debian provides Linux users with increased compatibility, and allows Linux distribution creators to eliminate duplication-of-effort and focus on the things that make their distribution special.

Although we're happy to supply this 2-CD set to you for a mere $3.78, we also recommend that you purchase the "official" boxed set. That way, you help support the Debian Organization so they can keep developing their products; you get the commercial products that come only with the "official" boxed set; you get a printed manual; and you can still order this very inexpensive 2-CD set to share with a friend!

You can also support the Debian Organization with a quick and easy $5.00 contribution.

Sorry, but this item is not covered by the Free CD Offer. Being a 2-CD set, it costs us twice as much to make as our other Linux CDs, and so we cannot offer it at no charge. We are also unable to accept returns of this set.

We strive to offer the best prices and availability to our customers. However, because the computer industry changes so rapidly, our prices and/or product availability may sometimes fluctuate. If your order will be placed at a later time, please check back to confirm price and availability.
