- The Debian project Debian is a group of individuals with a common aim to create a free operating system. The Debian systems are currently using the Linux kernel.
- Debian is a free operating system for your computer. An operating system is a program and utility suite that actually make a computer work.
- Debian is using the Linux kernel (the very heart of an operating system), but most of the basic tools are coming from the GNU project ; hence the GNU/Linux name.
- Debian GNU/Linux is much more than an operating system : it is made of more than 18000 packages ; packages are precompiled software components, created to be easily installed in your machine.

Xavier Oswald is a Debian user for 10 years and is a Debian developper since mid-april 2009. He’s also a member of the Debian-France association council and a member of several teams within the project, such as debian-installer, pkg-perl (perl modules maintenance), parted (a hard disk partitioning tool), debian-edu (a Debian distribution targetting the education systems), CipUX (an LDAP administration tool).

Xavier is working in several package maintenance teams within the Debian project and takes part to the development of the compiler/prototype-based object language Lisaac and of the IsaacOS operating system. Currently an IT master student, he’ll start his doctorate in Summer ’09.
