Debian revisited with 'Squeeze'

"As easier as it gets, as simple as it can be" - this is the present Debian at its testing version. I was fortunate enough to get a copy of the debian mirror from Ravi, a hacker and GNU/Linux enthusiast who is also part of the Sampada team. Now updating the mirror is easy. I'm no big fan of Ubuntu unlike many of my friends, but Ubuntu has its place too in my office depending on the necessity. But where does Debian figure in picture of distributions?

Spectacular planetarium - Stellarium

Overwhelming hpn September 22, 2008 - 06:47
Participation in the second edition of GNU/Linux Habba was huge. Close to 150 people turned up and the response was overwhelming. It was well above the capacity of the venue. I would have been much happier had the program been entirely in Kannada as was intended earlier. Our Mysore volunteers seemed to have a penchant for English (even in an event planned to be in Kannada) which took me by a little surprise.
