[News] Interview with Debian GNU/Linux Developer Jaldhar Vyas

Hash: SHA1

A Few Questions For Jaldhar H. Vyas 

,----[ Quote ]
| Apart from packaging, I have written documentation, represented Debian at 
| trade shows, conferences, and user groups and mentored prospective new 
| maintainers. One initiative I started which I am particularly proud of is 
| Debian-IN. This is a group of people interested in promoting Debian and Free 
| Software in India.    



Why do I like Debian

,----[ Quote ]
| Each distro has it's own appeal to different people. I am not going to make a
| judgment on any distro in this article. Just saying why I Like Debian so
| much.
| I like other distros for other reasons and maybe I'll explain those sometime
| in the future. Maybe not.
| All I can say is give me a Debian netinstall disk or a base livecd and I'm a
| happy camper.
| For me, it just doesn't get better than that.


Debian 5.0 Continues Strong Linux Tradition

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 5 of the Debian GNU/Linux open-source operating system offers the
| same top management tools and processor support that previous versions of the
| Linux operating system have. There also are a host of updates to open-source
| components, and the Linux distribution is still a great fit for servers and a
| solid desktop choice. However, the top reason for upgrading from version 4
| may be the relatively short three-year security fix window, less than the
| coverage time offered with Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux-derived
| CentOS.


Debian Lenny: Returning Home to the Mothership

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenny looks and works just fine on my system, and it is noticeably peppier.
| Maybe that's from using the nv driver; whatever it is, screen redraws and
| moving windows do not have the lag that Kubuntu and Ubuntu do, and scrolling
| Web pages is smoother and faster.


Lenny lights up an old laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| With the Debian Linux project officially designating “Lenny” as its
| new “stable” distribution, I decided to install it on an old Thinkpad to see
| how well it performs on a low-end machine. Without doubt, the results
| surpassed my wildest expectations!


Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 codename Lenny

,----[ Quote ]
| Long-awaited “Lenny” has finally been out! After 22 months of development,
| Debian development team announced the official release of Debian GNU/Linux
| 5.0 on 14th of February as planned (well, at least in American Samoa, which
| happens to be located in UTC-11.) and the very same day I installed and
| tested it on my laptop.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
