Debian and its clones A configuration mistake in the new Debian Linux distribution has forced a fix less than 24 hours after the software was released. "New installs [of Debian 3.1 from CD and DVD] will not get security updates by default," said Debian developer Colin Watson in an e-mail warning. Installations from floppy disks or network servers were not affected.

I always wait at least a month before updateting my system with a new version. I had other bad experience with freebsd 5.x in the past where important bugs where find soon after the release. Normally after some weeks, there are chance that the most evident bugs are fixed and installation will be painless.

Of course, it will test Sarge later this summer, since this seems to be a very impressive distribution !
