Happy Birthday Debian!
Also a reminder of the father of this operating system that i use. Ian! :(

A little dedication with a song from a fav band of mine

Blonde Redhead - Black Guitar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONNMITz3Gc0
Code: Select all
Black Guitar
Blonde Redhead

So long as your mind falls for life then life will fall for you
And I will love you for another life and another you
But as long as you will shadow me then I won't bear the fruits
That will want to make me love you another night and another you

Black guitar gave me a song
The role of your own demise awash my tears
If the sun may blind you
I find you the moon
No one shadows
The retina of your heart

So long as your eyes follow mine then mine will fall on you
And I will blind you for another night and another moon
But as long as you will battle me then I will stand accused
With a mind that will make you wonder is there a sun or is there a moon ?

Black guitar gave me a voice
The famous last words all I hate is here
Moving onto urgent matters
In the end I didn't die
In the end I didn't die
No one shadows
The retina of your heart
No one shadows
The retina of your heart
.
Part of Ian lives with us everyday :(

Very nice post Garry. Just to remember the origin and the beginning of everything.

On the year 1995 I was playing Nintendo - Super Mario Bros with a bunch of friends :)
I was in High School too. For me that year was a special year. Meanwhile computing i have started much later.

A thanks to all those who contribute in different ways for Debian

Ian Murdock: "The Debian design process is open to ensure that the system is of the highest quality and that it reflects the needs of the user community. By involving others with a wide range of abilities and backgrounds, Debian is able to be developed in a modular fashion." – The Debian Manifesto (1994)
