Wheezy, the imminent release of Debian GNU/Linux, is in great shape. I apt-get dist-upgraded the last PC in my home still running Squeeze this morning and it was uneventful. All my customizations survived except a few desktop icons. One package hung up and I had to remove it in order to finish. Afterwards I added it back in. The Little Woman did not notice anything different except the lost icons. I did the dist-upgrade remotely, too. Great fun.
Not bad for a new release. At the rate things are going in the bug-count, Debian should release Wheezy in March. Now the efficiency of my local repository should become real in that I have multiple clients all running the same release. I have two more Ubuntu GNU/Linux systems I would like to convert as well because I just find Ubuntu annoying. I have converted one system to XFCE4 so it’s less annoying but I might as well switch them to Debian as well.
