Debian Stretch Desktop Update

I’m giving my Debian Stretch drive a little attention and running updates.  It’s home is a 1TB 7400 RPM hard drive and serves as home to my personal and server backups as well as this machine’s Steam library.

Currently I’m running Peppermint 8 on my main SSD drive and Ubuntu 16.04.3 running i3 on my testing drive.

Side note Bryan & Matt answer my cliche question on the show.

Lastly, if we lived in the dystopian future of 2037 where only only one Linux distribution survived I hope it would be Debian. (see 7:13 of the video above)

Debian 9 Stretch Desktop

Just a little show and tell from my stable Debian desktop. “Stretch” is installed on my 1TB HD and is the defacto long term storage archive for my system.

The SSD is running Peppermint 8 and my ancient 5400RPM “distro hopping” drive is home to Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 at the moment.

Debian Stretch Desktop

Kicking the tires of Debian 9 (Stretch) and I’m very much at home here in the XFCE desktop.

I upgraded my system on the stable repository this morning and it worked flawlessly. Now that all the patents on the MP3 format have basically expired It’s even less effort to to set up.
