So I have a wheezy desktop
I look after a bunch of servers, working for Bytemark that is not a surprise, but I only touch a very small number of desktop systems.
- precious - My desktop
This is the machine upon which I develop, check my personal mail, play my music & etc.
- steve - My work machine
To keep the working from home separation going I have a machine I only use for work purposes.
- travel/travel2 - EEPC box
I have two EEPC machines, a personal 701 and a work-provided 901.
Honestly these rarely get used. One is for when I'm on holiday or traveling, the second for when I'm on-call.
Yesterday I got round to upgrading both the toy EEPC machines to wheezy. The good news? Both of them upgraded/reinstalled easily. Hardware was all detected, sleeping, hibernation, wifi, etc all "just worked".
Unfortunately I am now running GNOME 3.x and the experience is unpleasant. This is a shame, because I've enjoyed GNOME 2.x & bluetile for the past few years.
The only other concern is that pwsafe appears to be scheduled for removal from Debian GNU/Linux - the list of open bugs shows some cause, but there are bugs there that are trivial to fix.
For the moment I've rebuilt the package and if I cannot find a suitable alternative - available for squeeze and wheezy - then I will host the package on my package repository.
In conclusion: Debian, you did good. GNOME, I've loved and appreciated you for years, but you might not be the desktop I want these days. It's not you, it's me.
