Well, to be correct Debian is not an OS. Debian is a distribution of the Linux OS. A "distro" is made up of core packages and programs installed at install time, the "installer" program, a Linux kernel, a package management system, and many other things. The OS, Linux, interacts with these core packages and programs to let you be productive when using your computer.

Technically it is, but most people mean the OS when they say Linux.
Prawn to be wild!

Besides all the information you can find on the internet about Linux and Debian, ... if you really want to understand Debian's internals, ... just order the book 'The Debian System' written by Martin F. Krafft, a Debian developer.

I call it my Debian bible.
