On August 16, the Debian community will celebrate its 19th birthday since Ian Murdock's original founding announcement [1]. As is tradition, the Debian communities all around the world will gather to celebrate it with Debian Birthday parties.

A Debian Birthday party is a fun event, globally marking the appreciation and the joy of being part of our community and could consist of workshops, talks, or bug squashing parties both virtual and in real life. Check if there is one in your area [2], and if not, it's not too late to organize one and mark the event in the wiki!

The Debian Installer team announced the first beta release of the installer for Debian 7.0 "Wheezy". This new release includes various improvements in different areas, like booting, Linux kernel, APT, low memory installs, and networking. It also uses the new official theme "Joy". The installer supports 73 languages, of which 56 are fully translated. All the changes are listed in the Debian Installer team's announcement [1] to the Debian community.

The team asks Debian users to help in testing and improving this new version of the installer: while there are some known issues [2] with the installer that do not need to be reported, it is very important to try the installer in order to find all possible bugs before the release.

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 13 (Maya) desktop (with the XFCE desktop) that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
