Debian is a free operating system (OS) that comes with over 29000 packages, and below description is from the wiki:
Debian (/ˈdɛbiən/ or /ˈdeɪbiən/)) is a Unix-like computer operating system that is composed entirely of free software, most of which is under the GNU General Public License and packaged by a group of individuals participating in the Debian Project.
The Debian Project was first announced in 1993 by Ian Murdock, Debian 0.01 was released on September 15, 1993, and the first stable release was made in 1996.
The Debian stable release branch is one of the most popular for personal computers and network servers, and has been used as a base for many other distributions.
