The Debian Project is happy to announce that it will again be represented at this year's CeBIT IT fair in Hanover, Germany from the 1st to the 5th of March. Debian will again be a present as special guest at the booth of Univention GmbH, whose motto this year is Open source keeps the promises of the cloud and which can be found in hall 2 stand D36.

Members of the project will be available for questions and discussions and demonstrate new features of the recently released Debian 6.0 Squeeze, including the new port to the kernel of the FreeBSD project. Visitors will also have the opportunity to bring USB thumb drives or blank CDs in order to get a free copy of Debian 6.0.

In addition some of Squeeze's new features will be presented in a short talk at the Univention Open Source-Bühne on Tuesday the 1st of March at 13:30 and again on Thursday the 3rd of March at 15:30. An audio stream of the first session will be provided by Radio Tux, who will also open their Podcast on Saturday the 5th of March with interviews with Debian Developers and Press Officers Meike Reichle and Alexander Reichle-Schmehl.

We would like to thank our sponsors, notably Univention GmbH and Deutsche Messe AG for again sponsoring Debian's presence at this year's CeBIT.
