Debian 11 is coming


Everyone on Sid


I’m actually considering using bullseye once released.

Has a lot of my favorite versions of stuff and doesn’t update too often unless of a CVE. Been on arch for a month now but use a limited cell phone plan when I’m at home. Debian fits that niche real good. The best way to approach Debian of course is to debootrap an install and then turn off recommends. Then you get an arch like experience without constant updates.


BREAKING NEWS: Hell, who had been waiting for the developers of Debian to finally defrost their latest version, has finally frozen over, and has now migrated to Arch. A press release this morning stated

“Hell’s Board of Directors decided even though our deal with Ubuntu and Debian has been fruitful, we feel Debian’s timeline on “defrosting” Debian has made users feel like Hell is responsible, especially those who use browsers like Firefox. While we appreciate Debian as one appreciates a mule, we are now in the age of motor vehicles like Tesla. Arch is Tesla to Debian’s Hee Haw. To further illustrate our point, those who have been admitted to Hell arrive on a mule. Not in a Tesla. Although Jesus arrived on a mule, but we all know how that eventually worked out for Jesus.”

“The polar caps will be completely melted by the time Debian warms to Bullseye. Even for all those in Hell, this is untenable. HELL, whose brand is perpetuity! Debian has created a monopoly on perpetuity, and if we can freeze over waiting for Debian, then how can Hell compete with it?”

“Hell shall now be associated with Arch based distributions such as Manjaro, ArcoLinux, and Garuda. This is a market based decision, as those distributions align with our values. Market volatility is trend and speculative based, not legacy based. Why wait for Debian to freeze a release to make sure that it can still run on ancient hardware? Or retain packages that were developed 20 years ago in their libraries that only 30 people still use? On ancient hardware?”

“While we in Hell appreciate Debian’s commitment in keeping users in perpetual anticipation of the inevitable, even we have ceased our own patience with Debian. Debian is more tortuous the riding a mule on the 405 freeway during rush hour. Even the mule is annoyed.”

“Signed, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Mark Zuckerberg, Ajit Pai and Pat Boone, chairs of the Special Brand of Hell Committee”

Maybe you should try Haiku or ReactOS.


Why one have to wait
For Debian 11
When there is Testing?


“I keep telling the people over at Debian how to create a buzz several months before arrival, but they will never ever understand how to start a Xmas season in the summer, or shit like Black Friday after Thanksgiving. Fuck those guys, they are off my list” - Santa Claus.


Officially released.

Well they have finally given birth to that baby who has been gestating in that womb for a year or more, after the seed has hit the egg in the bullseye. Now we can wait two more years until 12. Hell that baby bullseye might be 12 years old when they give birth to that.

“Daddy, who is that new kid in the family that is getting all the attention now?”

“Ummm, your new stepbrother is named DUR, your mommy made a new friend in her archery class, she adopted him because of her lower back problems from carrying you for 14 months”.

LOL, Debian has too many users. Users like us, run Debian, or generally Linux for fun. Some business/enterprise users, they can not use testing/unstable branch. So every new stable release makes difference for them.

It’s like waiting for season 9 after season 8 of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. Larry is still the same asshole he was in 2011 after taking a break and returning in 2017. Debian is the Larry David of Linux. Still looks and acts the same as he has for years. People love him for his consistency. And he will still have problems with toilets.

If you look at it from a business point of view, it’s a good thing. So many companies are still with RHEL 6.x. The same goes to Debian.

Yeah I know, I was watching some YouTube vid with some dude who was criticizing the DistroWatch list, saying the list doens’t reflect how many actual users. He then pointed to a site that listed how many people used Steam on Linux, and used that metric as a baseline. There was like no mention of Debian. I immediately dismissed any vids from that dude after that.

I think it was last year when I was browsing the Thinkpad sub over at Reddit, and someone posted a picture of the astronauts floating about in the space station that just released a photo of them. In the background was a Thinkpad running Linux. People were asking what version of Linux was on the Thinkpad.

It was Debian 7 lulz.


Checking to see how the news broke over here, even though I run BL with MX:

I haven’t tested Beryllium yet, I like to wait for the official ISO. I have sort of BL’d the AL OB desktop, without of course all the BL accoutrements. Although I might change that to an addy inspired OB later this week once I get off my ass to do it.

I need @womp energy to tweak all my shit lulz. Even the beer hasn’t inspired me lately.
