Exploring Debian

Victor Leigh

Recommended Posts

I started with Ubuntu. Later I used Puppy Linux which is based off Ubuntu. After that I tried Linux Mint. Then I discovered Debian. Of course, it's not a totally new operating system to me. Ubuntu itself is a fork of Debian. Linux Mint also has a version built on Debian.


I haven't really scratched the surface yet with Debian. What I have found out so far is that I can change the desktop environment. This is quite an interesting thing to play with.


At one end of the spectrum, there is KDE, which is a very complete and comprehensive desktop environment. KDE even has a browser which works as a file manager, too. At the other end of the spectrum, there are bare-bone desktop environments like Openbox where you get a blank desktop, devoid of any icons.


Have you tried Debian yet?
