Debian Logo Sixteen years ago today, Ian Murdock announced the "imminent completion of a brand-new Linux release". The release was to be called the Debian Linux Release and was the start of one of the most popular community based distributions of Linux. It also became the basis for the Ubuntu Linux distribution. Debian GNU/Linux is renowned for its community's commitment to a free software philosophy.

In the last year, The H has featured interviews with the Debian Project Leader, Steve McIntyre, taken a look at Debian 5.0 Lenny, the latest Debian release, and reported on the latest news of Debian developments. The H looks forward to another year of reporting on the lively, active and passionate community that makes Debian what it is. Happy Birthday, Debian!
