hello guys, im new member in here, and i so interested with Crunchbang linux
i wanna ask, what is the different of versions 32bit Stable & 32bit Stable+Backports ?
and can you give me recommendation to choose of both ?
i will continue to seek knowledge.
Hi there MIHH and welcome to the community and distro
Backports is when they take updated apps and add it to the old(stable) release. so stable = older distro with matching older software and stable/backports = older distro with updated apps.
Personally, once I ran waldorf for a while, I stopped considering backports on Statler. Wally is incredibly stable, IMHO.
Basically, they're "what it says on the tin" - "Stable" is based on Debian Stable, whereas "Stable+Backports" is based on Debian Stable plus backported versions of newer software.
If you have an older machine that doesn't require any dirvers that aren't supported in the older kernel and you want absolute stability, go with "Sta(b)le"; if your PC was made within the past...I'd say within the past 12 months...you may have fewer compatibility issues if you go with "Stable+Backports".
