This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 5 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.
The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.
If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at email@example.com.

Februarys' Linux Journal has an article by Doc Searls (the man of bronze?) called "DIY-IT: How Linux And Open Source Are Bringing Do-It-Yourself to Information Technology" which includes the following quote:
"I'm seeing far more Debian than any report gives it credit for",
says one technologist working for a large vendor that has partnerships
with Red Hat and SuSE. "Red Hat and SuSE may sell more, so they show
up on surveys that follow sales. But in terms of implementation, Debian
is pretty big."
So all you stealth Debian users, stand up and be counted!
Slashdot has a story on Guillem Jovers' script to convert in-place a system running any Linux distribution to Debian.
OSNews has some links to reviews of Debian-based distros.
desktoplinux.com reports that Debian beat mandrake as best distro in their 2002 reader poll. They also have a short interview with Bdale.
Debian Weekly News had a pointer to an article in Linuxworld (the website not the expo) called Debian & carelessness mix well in which Nicholas Petreley woefully tells the tale of how he accidently deleted his /var partition. There is a happy ending though.
An Australian Newspaper 'The Age' has an Interview with Joey Schultze about Debian here.
