A non-commercial distribution of Linux. It is extremely comprehensive
(7 CDs worth of Good Stuff), cheap (SEK 198 or NZD 45 for the CD version;
Debian is too big to download as a practical matter), and committed to
distributing stable rather than cutting-edge versions. Not recommended
for laptop installs, though.
