Debian GNU Linux
Debian GNU / Linux was first announced in 1993. Its founder is Ian Murdock, he had hundreds of ideas developed by volunteers in their spare time to create a completely non-commercial purposes release. Was far greater than the optimist's skeptics that this is doomed to failure and collapse, but in fact the opposite is true. Debian not only survived, after almost 10 years of vigorous development, it became the largest Linux distributions, it may be the largest collaborative software project to date.
