      I agree with the Debian project's decision.

        is it Debian still letting services starting by default even when not used after their installation? I remember this was the most citricised security aspect of this otherwise once very popular distro.. Cheers

          If you have installed for instance, something like php5-fpm and you expect it not to auto-start by default, then all you must do is to remove it.

          If you mean after their uninstallation then yes, everything around this package gets removed, apart from its config files unless you are explicit about it.

          This is my personal experience as a Debian user for many years now.

            Am I reading it right? 4.10 instead of 4.5?

              This way they get time enough to package in Gnome 3.20. Maybe even 3.22.

                It would be a great thing for Debian Stable to have an LTS kernel and set their freeze timetables around that. An LTS kernel in Stable would surely be very advantageous to say the least.

                  "We anticipate releasing Stretch with version 4.10 of the Linuxkernel, which means a longer upstream support period and improved compatibility."

                    Best news I heard in a quite a while. If Debian starts tracking kernel LTS schedule consistently instead of making arbitrary cuts of their own, we'll start seeing more and better back porting of security patches and drivers. Now with Linaro's LSK and Android already following the LTS cycle train it will open the road for developers to target Debian as part of their overall Android and Chromebook support. Meaning we might end up seeing ARM Debian Mini-PCs
