|Debian is a community, and for a community to survive and grow it needs lots of support mechanisms – Debian Planet is one of those support mechanisms for the Debian community. Debian Planet as you might have gathered from our home page is a site geared to users of Debian; it provides a place for the exchanging of the latest Debian news, a place for users to discuss Debian related topics, forums to aid this discussion, links to other important Debian sites that can help our readership and lots of other great things all designed to help the Debian Community.
Everyone is invited to look around our web site and share in the news, views and reviews. Even if you are not a member of the Debian community yet, seeing how Debian supports its users at Debian Planet should reassure you, and help ease your transition to Debian.
Debian Planet was founded in October 2000 by Rob “robster” Bradford with the help of Andrew “Netsnipe” Lau, using significant contributions in the form of domains and hosting from uklinux.net.
Rob (robster) still runs the site and is aided in this by Robert McQueen (Robot101).
Other people who have helped out with Debian Planet in the past include: Andrew “Netsnipe” Lau, Sami “ressu” Haahtinen, Jared “solomon” Johnson, Josip “Joy” Rodin, Daniel Stone and Alp Toker. Thanks guys!
