As the title says, Debian 8 "Jessie" is to be released today... I wonder how many support requests will be related to systemd  :popcorn:

Jessie Release
==============

We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We
have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for
everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for
a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie".

The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical
pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up
technically unable to release that weekend.

Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from
Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before
then.

I'll also wait atleast few months before upgrading my production systems to Jessie. Still have few servers running Lenny without issues, thanks to the LTS support.

Also, there are many release parties happening in my place, almost 14 of them spread across the districts.

Few photos from the one happened at Trivandrum: https://www.joindiaspora.com/posts/5993074

I'm using Debian Jessie on all of my web servers for the past 2 months...it's been rock solid and I really love it. Systemd took a little bit to get used to but now I really like it.

WOW, that takes balls! I wouldn't dare to do that since Jessie has been the 'testing' distro up 'til now.

However, I DO use it as my desktop system since the last 3-4 months.

While Jessie has been in 'testing', its also been feature frozen since November.

If your going to reinvent the wheel make a better wheel
Yeah, that's my reaction.  Reinvention for the sake of reinvention.  One of the least attractive features of Linux is the endless change just for change's sake.

I've used systemd for a while now and while it is architecturally stupid and very much svchost.exe for Linux, in day-to-day work it doesn't impact me.  I'm just annoyed I had to take the time to learn it, change my scripts and docs, etc. when the benefit to me is zero.

Been playing with it on a local VM, testing it as a candidate for a re-install of home devices. I just love Debian+XFCE, always has been a stable and lightweight setup in my experience for at-home use.

I would wait a few versions centos7 has been out since last year and its still a POS

updated a centos 7 machine today and low & behold it would not boot "could not find root filesystem"

had to go back a kernel its happened 2 or three times since its inception. reminds me of the old Redhat 7,8,9 days when a simple kernel upgrade would break the system on a regular basis
