Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.

Ian Murdock announced on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.

Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

I didn't know him but he was obviously a talented guy. Sadly, he met a tragic end, at a relatively young age.

@fitheach I'd met him a couple of times. The news hit hard and still brings pain.
