Insight: Debian 10
Big day for Linux users and especially for Debian users as Debian 10 codename “Buster” has been released. It took almost 25 months to get it ready and the new version of Debian will be supported for the next 5 years.
Debian 10 “Buster” Released
It is a stable version and is based on Linux Kernel 4.19. It will use Wayland display server instead of Xorg.
The UEFI (
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) support which was first introduced in Debian 7 has been improved in the latest version of Debian. Users should no longer need to disable Secure Boot support in the firmware configuration as Secure Boot support is included in this release for amd64, i386 and arm64 architectures which will work out of the box on most Secure Boot-enabled machines. It will feature more than 59,000 other ready-to-use software packages, built from nearly 29,000 source packages. Debian can be installed in 76 languages.
Some of the desktop applications that will ship with the latest version of Debian are:
- Cinnamon 3.8,
