I have a question: Which OS is more stable: Kubuntu 13.10 or Debian Testing (Jessie)?
What about long-supported Kubutu. Is it better than short-supported ones, regarding safety and stability?
I am not so sure, what kind of distribution I should choose.
i changed Debian7 xfce 'testing' to 'Jessie' on my thinkpad laptop in order to get e17 windows manager working. but after the change, Debian 7 xfce taskbar, menu, firefox launch icon on desktop have all stopped working.
not sure what should i do to make it working again, any ideas?
If you want GIMP, then the version in Testing is 2.8.10, which isn't much different from Stable(2.8.2)If it is the latest GIMP you want (2.9) then you need to compile it from source. I have tried to do this with Stable, with no success.
Phoronix: Debian 8.0 Jessie Testing Against Updated Ubuntu Linux
Our latest Debian GNU/Linux benchmarks following the recent GNU/kFreeBSD vs. GNU/Linux comparison are benchmarks of Debian GNU/Linux in its latest testing form for 8.0 "Jessie" compared to a stock Ubuntu 14.04 LTS plus with an assortment of updates.
Jessie has it.. if you really need it you might have to track testing.. others know better than I about that, I'm not confident enough with stable yet to track testing.My search didn't show it in backports, so getting it on stable could be difficult, and/or inadvisable (borkage risk).
