Debian Lenny is absolutely positively totally 'rock solid' stable. Always.
However, if you change anything, do an upgrade, or install from outside the Debian 'stable' repositories ... then you are no longer using Debian 'stable'
All of use, have changed, upgraded and 'tweaked' our various Linux distributions to our own liking.
To the point that we are no longer using the 'original' installed distro.
GNU/Linux states in their constitution ... that with your Distro ... you can change, edit, tweak, modify, copy, redistribute, give-away, sell, fold, spindle or mutilate it. Whatever works for you.
So, in a sense .. we each have our own 'distro'

Yes, yes ... this sounds very familiar (I've been so many times in the same spot ... !). Some people really have super-thin skin. And it would be better if they didn't use any computer at all for the sake of everyone else's mental sanityFedoraRefugee wrote: You take it too personal. I am not testing your skin thickness, I really do not care one way or another. I am simply trying to show you that there are other ways to think about Linux. You are choosing to make me an enemy, I have nothing against you.
FedoraRefugee wrote:Yep! And Linux is Linux. The distro thing is just superficial anyway, the biggest difference will be the package manager. Install sudo in Fedora, use su - in Ubuntu, whatever...It really is all the same. Just a different wrapping paper.
I propose making the CLI more friendly with coloured text.
