    Sarge is released!!

    I know we "started" to talk about it here, but more people look at the coffee lounge, so here it is..
    The Debian Project is pleased to announce the official release of Debian GNU/Linux version 3.1 codenamed ``sarge'' after nearly three years of constant development. Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system which supports a total of eleven processor architectures, includes KDE, GNOME and GNUstep desktop environments, features cryptographic software, is compatible with the FHS v2.3, and supports software developed for the LSB.

    This will definetly help the Debian foundation seeing as how less jokes can be made about it being "ancient". One thing that does bother me (and always has about Debian) is the amount of CD's (if you don't want to do an net install). 14 CD's?!?!? I'm sorry but that is a bit much for me.

    With that said (it is my only beef with Debian), I am glad to see Sarge released.

    Indeed, I am excited. Just downloaded the net-install CD.

    Hi - thanks for this. You realise that now I'll need another hard drive. I swore I wouldn't dual (or triple) boot again, but this is tempting. I want to see if the installer is any good!

    This is good news! So now sarge is stable... Whats the current "sid" going to be named?

    Also, you wont need the 14 CDs... You'll do fine with netinstall, the 14 (thought it was 7 with woody) only contain packages fetchable over APT... So that means you only need all those CDs if you don't have internet connection on the box you're installing at, and need every fetchable application for some weird reason...

    Actually, when I tried woody from CDs once, it only used 4 of the 7 CDs even when I selected them all (at least I think so).

    It's very good thing... woody can now retire itself
    Long life to Sarge, but not too long, Etch is already growing

    Finally, a new STABLE Debian. Maybe now I can play with "Etch". Haha. On a side note, GREAT LEAPING LIZARDS BATMAN, 29 CDS (with source)?!?! This looks like a job for

    I *think* that sid is going to stay sid, while testing become etch.
