Switching stable to sarge

  • 5th Jun, 2005 at 12:08 AM

So I hear that smoke-test CDs of sarge are being burned, even as I type. In anticipation of the upcoming release, I have just switched over my woody machines to run sarge. Switching a couple of days early shouldn't hurt, besides I'll avoid the big rush to hit the mirrors when it does release.

Man, it's so weird to be running relatively recent software on these machines. Weird and fun.

Except for X
Congrats to the Debian release team, but you'll still be running an out-of-date version of X, older than what was in Fedora Core 2 (and FC4 is about to ship).

Other than the ancient X, Sarge is fairly current, and X won't matter that much if you run servers or have two-year-old hardware.

I always run testing or unstable. Many benefits and never much of a problem.

for desktop I switched to Ubuntu.

about time.

.1 release that jump GNOME from 1.4 to 2.8.... and is already obsolete.

A smoke-test becomes somewhat moot when you intentionally burn things... But then we wouldn't have so much fun mixing metaphors.
