Debian: Why? How? What next?

Why you should consider using Debian, some tips on how to actually use
Debian, with a look into how Debian actually got where it is and where
Debian is going in the future, both for Etch, and beyond.

[If you need a bio for me:

Don Armstrong is a Debian Developer who is active in end user support,
package maintenance, legal issues affecting Free Software, and works
on the Debian Bug Tracking System. He is also a graduate student at
the University of California, Riverside in the Cell, Molecular and
Developmental Biology program, where he uses Debian in his research.


NB: As far as contacting Seth Schoenberg, he'd be an ideal person to
have talk about DRM and TPM; he's also relatively well versed on the
impact of these aspects on GPLv3. (If you're interested, you can see a
talk I gave on that subject as well here:
