I've been running Stable for the last 4 years (Squeeze, then Wheezy) and haven't had a single hiccup in all this time.
The only minor issue was that the plasma widget for controlling Network...
I really enjoyed World of Goo, Shadowgrounds, Penumbra: Overture, Osmos, Trine, Braid.
They were all brilliant, high-quality games.
It says so on the left side of the graphic.
They should call the new company "Trolltech".
I'm open to alternative browsers, but in this Orwellian world, they have to come with the important extensions from firefox.

In order to use google hangouts, you must register a google+ account with your real...

Thank you all for detailed responses.
I understand why systemd is useful for login managers and starting the environment. I still think they should be soft dependency, but here the integration...
This addresses a question I didn't ask, and addresses it badly.
Why would a desktop application, like GIMP, care what the system daemon is doing? Why would Inkscape refuse to start if you run the...
Can somebody explain to me why a desktop app should have a hard (!!!) dependency on a particular system daemon?
Is there ANY technical reason for this?
In fact, both freetype and libav are now developed within the systemd tree, and use systemd calls exclusively. :D
Since nobody more knowledgeable is responding...
RadeonSI driver is split between Mesa and the kernel. I recommend installing the very latest versions of the kernel, LLVM, X.org and Mesa available...
