This interview was conducted with Martin F. Krafft, the author of "The Debian System". Despite Debian GNU/Linux's important role in today's computing environment, it is largely misunderstood and oftentimes even discounted as being an operating system which is exclusively for professionals and elite users. In this book Krafft, explains his concept of Debian, which includes not only the operating system but also its underpinnings. Debian is not only a robust and scalable Linux distribution, but it has many other features which are worth looking into, like its open development cycle and rigorous quality control.

The importance of Debian on the open source software community should not be underestimated- in addition to being one of the most secure and stable distributions available, it has also been the foundation for Knoppix, Ubuntu, and Xandros. Read on over at XYZ Computing.
