Debian

Debian (/ˈdɛbiən/) is a computer operating system composed of software packages released as free and open source software under primarily the GNU General Public License along with other free software licenses. Debian GNU/Linux, which includes the GNU OS tools and Linux kernel, is a popular and influential Linux distribution. It is distributed with access to repositories containing thousands of software packages ready for installation and use. Debian is known for relatively strict adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies as well as using collaborative software development and testing processes. Debian can be used as a desktop as well as server operating system. It focuses on stability and security and is used as a base for many other distributions. Wikipedia

/etc/apt/sources.list

The default sources.list leaves a bit to be desired. We recommend replacing your /etc/apt/sources.list with the following. Note: usage of mirrors.buyvm.net repos does not count against your allotted bandwidth allowance. To use the official Debian repos, simply comment or remove our mirrors, and uncomment the Debian Main Repos section.
