The Debian packaging system
Steven writes "Debian has become a very popular distribution for many Linux users. There are two main reasons that Debian is so popular, besides its packages. The first reason is that Debian is not controlled or updated by any one company or small group of people. Debian is worked on by hundreds of developers nationwide, true open source. The second is that Debian contains one of the most advanced and useful packaging systems. Not only is it an easy process to build or install a Debian package, excellent documentation is provided to help even a young teen learn how to build one. Article here, on LinuxGuru.net."
