My life with Debian

"I'm a long time Debian user. And I'm a happy Debian user. My current Debian installation is very (and I mean very, very) old. I don't remember exactly how old it is, but it's more than 6 years old. And it's probably as much as 9 years old. Since early months it was unstable branch of Debian. It is updated regularly, as often as my (quite poor at times) network connectivity allows.

"When I'm getting new machine I simply copy my existing installation on new machine. And my particular OS has already been reincarnated from one machine to another for countless times.

"I'm not trying to set any records here. I'm just lazy enough to avoid re-installing my OS and setting it up. But I seriously doubt than any other OS or distro can handle it. It's unique combination of Debian's approach to distro development, package upgrade-ability policies and attention to software quality that makes it possible.

"So I owe a big thank you to Debian guys for their outstanding job during all this years. Thanks a lot!"
