There's no substitute for apt.
I managed to install Debian on an old micro system, e.g. 486 cpu,
50 MHz, 8 or 16 MB RAM, 850 MB disk, no CDrom. In other words:
there is GNU/Linux life for old hardware.
Stable means stable, even though some may prefer the term
I can do all configuration with vi. Easy for me. YMMV.
I'm very impressed by the Debian effort.
A big ``Thank You!'' to all contributors!
