Debian – The Universal Operating System

Filed under

The other day, I blogged about the Debian Installer, and I stated that I find it to be one of the most flexible and possibly most powerful operating system installers. Well, continuing with a series of posts on Debian, I want to mention how flexible the operating system is by itself, from installing to running. The claim from the Debian project that it is “The Universal Operating System” is spot on, and I hope this post shows you really how universal it truly is.

First off, let me start by saying that Debian isn’t perfect. No operating system is. However, I find the flexibility of Debian extremely powerful. So powerful, in fact, that Debian can meet the needs of most individuals and situations. While it may not meet the needs of all individuals all the time, I’m confident that it can either meet the needs of all individuals some of the time, or some of the individuals all the time.

Let’s take a look.
