I thought about putting this in the “Fixed or Rolling Release” thread, but wasn’t sure it was a real fit soooo
I was using Debian Buster (as Testing) for over 6 months before Buster became the new stable. I had it on partitions on a couple of the refurbished laptops I have and upgrade it to “Stable” status. I also did a new install of Buster on my, let’s call it, my main laptop (replacing SparkyLinux 5.8).
Today, I’ve upgraded on of my refurbs Debian installs to Debian Bullseye (the new Testing) and as I type I’m upgrading this one also (lots of updates already from Debian 10). As I said, not exactly a Rolling release and the Debian “bleeding edge”, but I’m interested to see just how it goes. It may be 2 years before Bullseye goes stable, will it last that long before it breaks? will I get beored before then? will this refurbished HP EliteBook 8470p (or the Thinkpad X230 that I’ve already updated) last that long?
I will say that I have more faith in Debian Testing, even at this early stage, than I have in some distro “release candidates”
Anyone else playing with Bullseye? (Sid users need not reply, that’s a step too far for me )
