      I will upgrade the backup server later today. Finally, the last non-systemd machine in my home will be gone.

        Do anyone know how to get Xfce 4.12 on this? Can't find good backport repo.

          Upgraders beware

          Be warned that if you upgrade to jessie /usr should not be on a separate filesystem (according to the systemd error message).
          It can be a bit tricky recover from this if you root filesystem does not have the available space, however I was lucky!

          Happy upgrading

              Out of curiosity : why did you install using separate /usr? I can think of good reasons for a separate /var and /home, but /usr?

                Out of madness ... joking aside - the reason is that /usr is kept on a raid1 for redundancy reasons.

                    separate /usr has quite a long hstory, probably since when OS installs were done from a tarball; there are still some uses for it today

                    /usr tends to be rather large but compresses well
                    /usr is only modified for package updates, it could be read-only at other times, on a live CD for example
                    /usr contains easily replaceable data and may not need to be on redundant storage
                    /usr could be identical across many systems, you may want to store only one copy of it and NFS-export it out to many machines; or bind-mount it into many containers
