One of the main objectives of the Centro di Competenza sul Software Libero del Politecnico di Torino is to provide custom GNU/Linux distribution to the Public Administration, small and medium enterprise and schools. Debian GNU/Linux was choosen as the base for the custom distributions because of its strong support of free software and its long-standing technical merits: minimalist hardware requirement, the best available packaging system, support for 13 different architectures and a strict set of quality guidelines adopted by all the active Debian developers. The only foreseeable limitation, the Debian default text-based installer, was overriden by restarting the development of the then-abandoned Debian graphical installer. Now the new graphical installer is developed by tens of people and it will be included in the next official Debian release.
