Linux, Open Source & Ubuntu: Debian 6.0 Branches Out Beyond the Project's Linux Roots
Debian 6.0, also known by the Toy Story-inspired name "Squeeze," branches out from its Linux-centric roots with new, technology preview variants based on the FreeBSD kernel. Debian 6.0 will play well in server deployments that draw on open-source components, which the Debian project has a knack for packaging up for easy installation over one of the project's repository mirror sites. The distribution can also work well in a desktop role, particularly for users who wish to closely control the versions and configuration of the software on their machines.
