Submission + - Happy birthday Debian!->

An anonymous reader writes: The Debian community is pleased to celebrate its 19th birthday since
Ian Murdock's original founding announcement [1]. Quoting from the
official project history [2]: "The Debian Project was officially
founded by Ian Murdock on August 16th, 1993. At that time, the whole
concept of a 'distribution' of Linux was new. Ian intended Debian to be
a distribution which would be made openly, in the spirit of Linux and
GNU."
