The universal operating system

The Debian Project is a worldwide group of volunteers who endeavor to produce an operating system distribution that is composed entirely of free software, including the Linux operating system kernel, and thousands of prepackaged applications, featuring several hardware architectures, including Intel 32-bit and 64-bit, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.

Collabora has a very unique relationship with the Debian project as many Collabora employees are active as Debian Developers or Maintainers in many different ways and positions: Debian GNOME Team, Debian System Administrators, Debian Build Daemon Administration, Debian Release Team, Debian Publicity Team and many others. Collabora is a listed Debian Consultant.

Why Debian?

The operating system produced by the Debian project is considered by Collabora as one of the most open and democratic. With over 37,000 projects packaged and available to Debian user community, it provides a tremendous platform for Collabora to deliver virtually any customer project.

The project and OS are mature and stable, over 20 years in production, providing a solid baseline for OEM products. Collabora is the leading company providing services around the Open Build Service (OBS) for Debian.

Derivatives. With Ubuntu and the hundreds of other derivatives, there are nowadays literally millions of users impacted by Debian, this allows to keep Debian OS not only well tested and proven but also very flexible for all kind of needs.
