Debian Jessie - 3 weeks in

Well, I've been using Jessie for about 3 weeks now and after a rocky start, everything is going smoother. Samba was not a big all night process this time since I backed up my /etc folder before doing a fresh install (along with my home folder of course).

Cinlerra & Firefox installed without a hitch since as of right now they are just downloadable binaries. Audacity, and Avidemux would not install without first upgrading some libraries. I believe this might have been due to an...
