    Hopefully they'll keep improving the ARM EFI after releasing stable. The new low cost Allwinner SBCs with uboot on EEPROM are just starting to come out and it would be a real shame if such a convenient feature would end up being limited just to a couple of high cost data center and embedded boards.

      Hey Michael, it seems like the link has turned into an invisible box which can only be clicked before the ad appears, and it leads to a Not Found page...

          Debian testing is hard to find, that is why people use poor stable with old and buggy software.

          Bullshit!

            because that would require a name change.

              Nice, seems like Debian merged /sbin /bin /lib with /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/lib following what Fedora did a year ago.

                looking at the page source...
                Code:
                via <a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2016/11/msg00006.html'>the release announcement</a>.</div>
                Yeah, it looks Michael used a single quote to close a double quote, and that broke the link.

                extracting link below:

                  Anything that promotes standardization between distributions is always welcome, for better or for worse.

                  I hope RPM-based distributions will in turn seriously consider Debian's approach to multiarch (/usr/lib/$arch) instead of staying with /usr/lib and /usr/lib64

                    If you don't mind me asking, whats the benefit? Is there a situation where you would have another arch installed other than the 2?
