Me: You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to be stable. You were supposed to bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness.

Debian: I hate you!

Me: You were my brother, Debian! I loved you.

@polanco @ParadeGrotesque Just like a tween that Debian 10, eh? All attitude. 🤪

@claudiom

He he he... Never really used Debian in any case. Since it has been using systemd for several versions now, probably never will except as a quick test.

@polanco

@ParadeGrotesque @claudiom yeah, it's a sacrifice I did because I needed to get up and running, and it's (with Ubuntu) the more mainstream/supported distros.

How's Slackware in terms of stability? Might try it for a change.

My last uptime (on my home server) was 260+ days.

That machine is on 24/7/365. The only time it reboots is when there is an electrical power issue or a kernel update.

I have had uptimes on more than a year on that machine. And it's off the shelf components, not "professional" server hardware.

I have also worked with on "real" server hardware, and had the same kind of uptime. It's really great when you need something stable.

@ParadeGrotesque @polanco I second Slackware's stability (so much alliteration lol). I still run it even though I'm using a lot of BSD lately. Makes a great server as well as a great desktop (still run it as a desktop on an old laptop).

@claudiom @ParadeGrotesque just reading the guide I can feel how my beard is turning grey.
