Debian, organized by the Debian Project, is a widely used distribution of free software developed through the collaboration of volunteers from around the world. Since its inception, the released system, Debian GNU/Linux, has been based on the Linux kernel, with many basic tools of the operating system from the GNU project.

Debian is known for its adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies, and for its abundance of options—the current release includes over fifteen thousand software packages.

Debian is also known for its package management system, especially APT, for its strict policies regarding the quality of its packages and releases, and for its open development and testing process. These practices afford easy upgrades between releases without rebooting and easy automated installation and removal of packages.

Debian GNU/Linux is the basis for several other distributions, including the FreeLink firmware, which is one of the distributions of Linux available for the LinkStation
