    Phoronix: Debian 6.0 Is Getting Ready With An RC Installer

    It was back in late October that the Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" installer had reached beta status and now today its first release candidate has been introduced...

    If you want 2.6.32 you can always downgrade it later. So what kind of argument was that?

    Still it is unfortunate for desktop users, as they will miss out on all the new shiny hardware that was launched at this year's CES. (And last year's too...)
    No desktop user uses stable Debian so it's ok...
    They use testing most likely, I used to be on unstable, then unstable/exp cause it's only fun when it breaks

    That kernel works great and is well maintained by its developer (damentz)

    It works on Squeeze and Sid out of the box and it'll work when Squeeze goes stable too.

    Debian chose the 2.6.32 kernel because it's a "longterm" kernel and it's well-developed (which is probably why those other distros chose it).

    Still it is unfortunate for desktop users, as they will miss out on all the new shiny hardware that was launched at this year's CES. (And last year's too...)
    I don't know of any desktop users running Debian stable, except maybe some folks with no internet (and they aren't too likely to have shiny new hardware).

    I wonder if Wheezy will finally have support for WPA/WPA2 in the installer. It's pretty sad that in 2011 the Debian project is about to release a new major version that still only supports WEP.
