Debian 11 →

Debian news:

After 2 years, 1 month, and 9 days of development, the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 11 (code name bullseye), which will be supported for the next 5 years thanks to the combined work of the Debian Security team and the Debian Long Term Support team.

I’ve been rocking Gentoo on my NUC for some time, but eventually I moved to Debian Sid as I wanted to use “bare-metal” for packages building. While I do miss certain features of Gentoo, I immediately felt at home with Debian. Even with all of the systemd parts that rub me the wrong way – especially as was proven by other distros it’s not the only way1 – the overall experience is just right. Congrats to the Debian project for the bullseye release.

  1. OpenRC being prime example IMHO.
