Lightweight, straightforward linux distribution

  • June 09, 2024
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
It can be run on just about anything. We have plenty of old computers to continue running Windows, but found new lives running as Debian-based servers.
What do you dislike about the product?
Coming from Windows/Windows Server, the learning curve is fairly substantial. However, once you get the hang of it, the knowledge applies to other Linux distributions as well. Also, there is a plethora of help online.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We need to use Docker to run most of our applications. Debian is the most efficient way to run these Docker containers. Also, we have old computers that do very well when running Debian as a CLI-only OS.

Best OS if you are looking for a friendly Linux with minimum hassle!

What do you like best about the product?
Package Management - This is by far the best thing about Debian. It uses the APT (Advanced Package Tool) package manager, which simplifies software installation, updates, and dependency management. The vast Debian repositories offer a wide range of software packages.

Flexibility - It offers different flavors to cater to various needs due to its ease of implementation. Whether you're looking for a lightweight system (like Debian Minimal) or a specialized distribution (like Debian Edu or Debian GIS), there is likely a Debian variant suited to your requirements.

Integration - Due to its well built infrastructure, the most popular Linux OS called Ubuntu is based on it!

Community - It has a large and active community of users and developers. This means ample customer support through forums, mailing lists, and extensive documentation.

Usage Frequency - It is found on a vast majority of servers.
What do you dislike about the product?
Limited Official Support for Non-Free Software - It strictly adheres to free software principles, which means it has limited official support for proprietary or non-free software.

Slower Release Cycle - While the stability of Debian is a strength, its slower release cycle means users may have to wait longer for new features or software updates compared to distributions with more frequent releases.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Debian ensures I have a stable and secure platform for my local wireless network monitoring tasks due its ready to go drivers available to provide me low level hardware access. Its reliability, security features, flexibility, and broad hardware compatibility allow me to run monitoring tasks smoothly, customize my setup as needed, and ensure compatibility with my network hardware, enabling seamless use of tools like Wireshark and others.

One of the stable Linux Distros

  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
There is Debian Social Contract which means that Debian will always serve its users and not investors. Debian is not affiliated with any company. Debian is faster as compared to Ubuntu.
What do you dislike about the product?
I dislike Debian because of APT and the fact that it tends to do way too many things behind your back, things that sometimes backfire horrendously as soon as you stray too much from the path Debian dug .
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Debian has some of the fastest and reliable operating systems. Being from cybersecurity background, I use Kali Linux extensively. Every tools needed for penetration testing and vulnerability hunting are right there in the table top.

A Stable Foundation - Debian Operating System

  • February 12, 2024
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Debian 11 is a simple and reliable distro that just helps you to make the work done. You won’t get any surprise with it - neither negative nor positive. This LTS release is supported for 5 years. So, you can install it and just focus on your work. Also, you need to have some Linux experience to install and configure Debian 11.
What do you dislike about the product?
On the other hand, the software in Debian is always a bit older than it should be. You can overcome this obstacle with Flatpak or Snap apps. But this will not give the experience of native apps.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Creating a tailored operating system for specialized embedded hardware

I have been using Debian desktop and server for a while, I have used aarch ARM64 version on embedded devices as well.

my experience with Debian against other well-known distros was quite satisfactory and comes with all the development tools needed for, neved any issue with package updates.

One notable advnatage of Debian is its integration with Yocto which is now widely uses in many embedded communities and it's quite straightforward to customize the dirsto based on the hardware requirements.

It's one of the best distro to use as a general purpose activity or even development enviroment quite easy and straightforward installation too.
What do you dislike about the product?
Although Debian supports lots of desktop environments, sometimes I found it more difficult to deal with remote connections using XFCE or Gnome using Debian. however other distro can handle this more efficiently.

developing cutomized OS on customized embedded hardware.
