Since 2000, the-One-True-Linux (Debian GNU/Linux) has been the facto standard distribution for servers and routers. It is widely used at faculty level, such as the Faculty of Computer Science, the Faculty of Science, as well as the Faculty of Engineering. It is also a standard operating system at university level. UI is also proudly hosting mirrors of free software at http://kambing.ui.ac.id and http://sdn.vlsm.org.
Around 75 servers are using Debian as operating system.
We choose Debian because it has the best package management, high grade security updates and slim installation for server or any specialized installation. It can be customized easily and the neat documentation provided in /usr/share/doc makes it easy to start configuring a new technology.
