Anyone using Stretch yet?

Postby Bulkley » 2015-05-09 22:04

When Jessie became Stable I upgraded. I have liked all Debian releases but particularly Wheezy; Jessie not so much. I'm not quite sure why but Jessie doesn't impress me. Consequently, after making sure that all was working I changed my sources to Testing and kept upgrading. So far, Stretch looks better to me than Jessie. Sorry, I can't quite figure out why; it's just gut feeling.

Any thoughts?

I still like sid -- it's absolutely awesome at the moment, keeps trying to remove my entire desktop every time I upgrade...

I'm pretty impressed with Jessie so far, havnt tried the new testing yet. If you liked Wheezy so much it is supported for another 3 years. :wink:

Yeah, it's fully updated now :)

I got hit by the libsane bug yesterday as well -- as I say, great fun :D

We have a laptop that is going to stay Wheezy for the foreseeable future. I also have my Wheezy for my desktop nicely cloned on another drive if I decide to backtrack. Gotta love Clonezilla!

I'm still using Squeeze on my acer aspire one netbook but now have jessie on my home desktop and on my office computer too where there are two other desktops running wheezy as well as on a server. I'm content with stable but I'm tempted to start tracking stretch rather than using it as my main system, using a chroot as per edbarx's viewtopic.php?f=16&t=107544.

I have been using Testing since last November, and this system caught Stretch last weekend, when over one ninety packages became upgradeable and over one thousand new packages appeared. (Note that I also track Testing Proposed Updates.)
No issues so far. Join the party!

My desktop in my apartment is currently on Debian Testing ("Stretch"). Whatever was missing Jessie, Stretch filled in the blank very well. No problems or bugs thus far.

My laptop is always on Debian Unstable ("Sid"). I only had to wait a week to be sure that almost nothing gets removed due to anything xorg-related or xserver-related.

And what are the benefits of your approach, compared to using Testing?

My laptop is better suited for anything that can go right OR wrong from using Sid. And besides, I like newer software. :mrgreen:

But if you wait one week before installing updates in Sid and new packages (hopefully) migrate to Testing ten days after they reach Sid, your system is never actually that new when compared to Testing.
To each his own, I guess.
