데비안은 랩톱, 데스크톱 및 서버를 비롯한 광범위한 장치를 위한 운영 체제입니다. 사용자들은 1993년 이후로 안정성과 신뢰성을 좋아했습니다. 모든 패키지에 대해 적절한 기본 구성을 제공합니다. 데비안 개발자는 가능한 한 평생 동안 모든 패키지에 대한 보안 업데이트를 제공합니다.
데비안은 넓은 하드웨어 지원을 합니다.
Most hardware is already supported by the Linux kernel. Proprietary drivers for hardware are available when the free software is not sufficient.
데비안은 부드러운 업그레이드를 지원합니다.
Debian is well known for its easy and smooth upgrades within a release cycle but also to the next major release.
데비안은 다른 많은 배포판의 씨앗이며 기반입니다.
Many of the most popular Linux distributions, like Ubuntu, Knoppix, PureOS, SteamOS or Tails, choose Debian as a base for their software. Debian is providing all the tools so everyone can extend the software packages from the Debian archive with their own packages for their needs.
데비안 프로젝트는 커뮤니티입니다.
Debian is not only a Linux operating system. The software is co-produced by hundreds of volunteers from all over the world. You can be part of the Debian community even if you are not a programmer or sysadmin. Debian is community and consensus driven and has a democratic governance structure. Since all Debian developers have equal rights it cannot be controlled by a single company. We have developers in more than 60 countries and support translations for our Debian Installer in more than 80 languages.
데비안은 여러 설치 옵션이 있습니다.
End users will use our Live CD including the easy-to-use Calamares installer needing very little input or prior knowledge. More experienced users can use our unique full featured installer while experts can fine tune the installation or even use an automated network installation tool.
