| As long as the issues with the graphics drivers are ironed out, I believe 
| Jaunty Jackalope will become another must-have upgrade and if you are smart

| very little effort.

Debian 5's Five Best Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite delays and internal arguments, Debian 5, Lenny, has finally arrived,
| and it's a darn nice Linux distribution.

| well-regarded Linux developer, who uses Debian for the foundation of his
| SimplyMEPIS Linux distribution, has to say. Woodford, who switched MEPIS'
| cornerstone distribution from Ubuntu to Debian in 2007, said, "Behind the
| scenes, MEPIS is being used more and more in demanding environments, so I was
| happy the Debian teams decided to use the hardening features in gcc to
| increase the security of Debian in Lenny."
