-The idea of this page is for those users very close to Debian, but that are not experts, can be oriented within the world of Devuan resources ​with respect ​to what they already know, in this way facilitating their inclusion in the world of Devuan.+This comparison ​of Debian ​and Devuan resources ​makes it easy for new Devuan users to find what they're looking for (and vice versa).
  
-===== Official Equivalent Resources ​=====+===== Resource Comparison ​=====
  
-It should be noted that it is not an exact copy of, because it is an independent project where only its birth is a fork of the original debian. So not all the resources must have and exact equivalent ​of course.+Devuan and Debian are similar in many respects but not identical in their approach ​and choice ​of tools.
