On the DVD


Debian is among the oldest and largest Linux distributions. Thanks to its stability and security, two-thirds of all the distributions listed on DistroWatch are based on Debian, including Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

Debian 11.6 is the latest point release from the stable repository (aka "bullseye"), the latest general release. Like all Debian releases, it is not the most cutting-edge distro available. However, it is one of the most stable and tested distributions. Like other point releases, the 11.6 release contains security and bug releases, rather than any new features.

Whether you are setting up a server or simply value a reliable installation, Debian 11.6 is a dependable distribution. In particular, if you are having trouble installing Linux, its detailed installer with its extensive hardware support can often provide a solution.
