1850Re: Raspberry Pi/What OS To Use
- Jun 19, 2013Sorry Ray, have to disagree.
Debian Stable (wheezy) most definately is not a rolling release.
Debian testing (Jessie) is a rolling relese in that have been (fairly) thoroughly tested in Debian unstable (Sid). In a year or two 'Jessie' will replace 'Wheezy' as the stable release.
I would not recommend Jessie or Sid (especially the latter) to anybody who does not have a fairly extensive knowledge of Linux.
Linux Mint Debian Edition takes updates from Jessie, so could be described as a rolling release.
Ubuntu have stated their intention to move back towards Debian. They have the unfortuante tendency to put dates on their releases and get them out on time, 100% ready or not.
