The Unthinkable: Moving From Ubuntu to Debian 5 Lenny

,----[ Quote ]
| I am thinking the unthinkable…..I am considering changing from Ubuntu 8.10
| for my desktop to Debian 5. I have been running the Debian 5 Lenny candidate
| for awhile and have bee very pleased with the stability and features. It
| actually functions and acts more like the distribution I need and work on
| than Ubuntu. Not so say that Ubuntu is bad, just that I typically do not need
| or use the latest applications. I mainly work on my Linux desktop for about
| 60 hours a week. So I really need something I can count on. Again, not that
| Ubuntu has let me down, it has never really crashed on me but I do struggle
| with bugs from time to time. I use my GUI desktop to work from as I manage
| Linux servers, either Ubuntu or CentOS.


Release update: deep freeze, planned dates, and remaining bugs

,----[ Quote ]
| As you've probably read by now, the Installer Team has announced [1] the
| availability of the second, and hopefully final, release candidate for
| the Lenny installer. Testing of these images is highly encouraged.
| Following the plan outlined in the previous release update [2], we are
| now in deep freeze, which means that we'll only be migrating to testing
| packages that fix RC bugs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
