Revolutionary Software Packaging System
Debian Linux includes the highly touted Debian Package Management system.
Software package upgrades are a snap. Using a database of software
packages, a new application is reviewed prior to installation for additional
packages that need to be available. Previous versions which may cause a
conflict are also reviewed. The Debian Software Packaging system eliminates
problems associated with installing and uninstalling related software. In
addition, software can be updated easily through FTP from the Debian Linux
FTP site on the Internet. Debian has become very popular in a short period
of time because of its reputation of flexibility and power.
Debian Linux offers one of the most unique software licenses in the industry
(full copyright and licensing information included inside). It has all of
the power and features of UNIX (tm) in addition to including complete source
code. Debian Linux combines the efforts of thousands of software developers
using GPL licensing throughout the world into one easy to use package at a
very attractive price. To duplicate the software included with Debian Linux
would cost in excess of One Billion dollars. You get it all for a great
price from Linux Press!
