First distribution ships with Debian-Installer

June 21st, 2004

Debian-Installer has for the first time shipped as the installer to a released GNU/Linux Distribution: Skolelinux 1.0 is a Debian derived distribution for use in the schools. The Skolelinux team has worked closely with the Debian-Installer team throughout the development of the installer, and they are able to use Debian-Installer to install an entire school network in a matter of hours, without needing to make any code changes to our installer, a testimony to both the flexibility of Debian-Installer, and the good work of the Skolelinux developers.
