+ - Debian 6.0 Released In Linux, FreeBSD Flavors-> 1

Submitted by itwbennett
itwbennett (1594911) writes "After two years of work, the Debian Project has announced the release of Debian 6.0. 'There are many goodies in Debian 6.0 GNU/Linux, not the least of which is the new completely free-as-in-freedom Linux kernel, which no longer contains firmware modules that Debian developers found troublesome,' says blogger Brian Proffitt. And in addition to Debian GNU/Linux, Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is introduced as a technology preview. 'Debian GNU/kFreeBSD will port both a 32- and 64-bit PC version of the FreeBSD kernel into the Debian userspace, making them the first Debian release without a Linux kernel,' says Proffitt. 'The Debian Project is serious about the technology preview label, though: these FreeBSD-based versions will have limited advanced desktop features.' Installation images may be downloaded right now via bittorrent, jigdo, or HTTP."

    For us KDE3 fans that means coming to terms with the Plasma Desktop, switching to another DE or window manager or installing KDE 3.5.12 [pearsoncomputing.net] from outside repositories. Much as it will be nice to see some "new" programs like iceweasel (Firefox) 3.5.16 replace 3.0.6 they will have to pry my Lenny CDs from my stiff, dead fingers.
