Debian 10 Buster: Debian is one of the distributions I prefer, for many different reasons I have mentioned from time to time. It is developed by a wholly voluntary organization dedicated to developing free software and promoting the ideas of the Free Software community.
Debian is one of the oldest Linux distributions in the world and, in terms of the number of developers involved, is one of the largest communities. About 1.300 partners worked on Debian 10, which was released on July 6.
Debian 10 Buster offers packet upgrades across the operating system, but the main changes to this release include turning AppArmor on by default and using Shell GNOME in Wayland.
GNOME running with X.Org is available as an alternate method of running the desktop. The release announcement also states that nftables can be used to manage an operating system firewall and that Secure Boot is enabled for only some architectures. This release of Debian will have a total of five years of support, thanks to the long-term support team.
The new version of Debian, codenamed "Buster", runs on many processor architectures and is available in net-install, full installation DVD and seven live desktop versions. This gives users many installation options.
Although not mentioned in the distribution announcement, Debian's installation tools do not include non-free firmware that is often required to connect to wireless networks. So, for those of you who are thinking of trying to distribute, you need to install the firmware needed to have wireless networking. Of course, there is an informal live ISO with non-free firmware.
Debian has gained a reputation for the stability of its distribution but the very good returns.
It starts fast, and GNOME has a relatively small footprint on the disk and the memory it uses. The software that it has by default is trusted, making Debian a very reliable desktop and server operating system.
Debian runs on many hardware architectures, offers many desktop options and provides a huge volume of software packages. It can work with portable packet formats, many kernel types and is small enough to work in many different environments. It is surprisingly versatile.
There are some negative consequences for Balancing the stability and flexibility of Debian. One is that Stable Channel packages are often too old compared to the same software in other distributions. Almost every package is at least six months in circulation, while some are a year old. So for those who want to run the latest software running, stable versions of Debian are not ideal.
For me, Debian does not offer modern design. Some distributions are particularly focused on the UI design, but Debian seems to do the opposite, but it offers many choices of packages and tools to design the UI you want on your own.
We can describe the difference as if you have a new car model and a Lego car. The first one has a clear plan, while the second lets you play.
In short, I am very pleased with Debian 10 Buster, which I have been using since it was on the testing channel. It has some problems with GNOME software and the lack of non-free firmware.
Or, more specifically, the non-free firmware is hidden and should be added to sources.list.
However, performance, software, support for too many architectural CPUs and low resource usage make this release very good.
I could not recommend Debian to a new Linux user because the system needs manual intervention to work. Moderate and experienced Linux users will be very pleased.
