Just for laughs and giggles, yesterday I went into my sources list in my Debian Jessie installation and changed my sources list. I erased all of the sources that said Jessie and typed in the word stretch.

So now I am running some kind of cutting edge experimental beta version of Debian 8.3 which is not Jessie, but Stretch.

I guess this goes well with the beta version of Windows 10 that I am running as well as with Ubuntu 16.04 that I have installed.

 

Man this is a fun hobby.

Yes it is. Debian is a funny beast, way different than Ubuntu or Linux Mint. It is not fast or flexible or even very forgiving, but with this experiment I went in blind and came up with a nice version of Debian that I really like better than the out-of-the-box version of Debian. 

 

The process was time consuming because it take about an hour or more to download all of the new files, but since I have done this the installation seems stable and faster. I am loving this "sid/stretch" version of Debian

wizard, Isn't it funny how much one can learn in a short period of time when you really LOVE the subject.

 

Linux has definitely been a fun adventure and I hope to keep up my learning and enjoyment for years to come.

Edit; Check out post # 30 in the thread that the wizard linked to. What a howl.
