Happy Birthday, Debian!

Okay, I'm a few days late, but still.

The 16th of August is Debian's birthday. It was on the 16th of August, 1993, that Ian Murdock announced the 'imminent' release of "the Debian Linux Release".

As such, this year Debian celebrates its 18th birthday. It's incredible, but this means that if Debian was a person, it could now legally drink hard liquor. At least in some jurisdictions.

What's more incredible is that I just realized that, since I've been involved with Debian for over 10 years, I've actually got first-hand experience for more than half Debian's lifetime.

Time sure flies.
