Everyone should run what they want. I installed jessie right after it froze in November because...

~it's frozen, it's about as stable as wheezy is with much newer packages.
~it's almost the same as sid right now, because sid gets frozen while everyone pushes jessie.
~in a few months when jessie becomes stable, sid is going to be a panic, since packages held up by the freeze will come flooding in.
~when jessie gets older and the packages get a bit stale, I'll jump to testing again and then track that to the next stable.

Tracking sid (and testing once jessie is stable) is great, but you need to do a little extra work by upgrading frequently and checking the upgrade warnings first.

Good info, I didn't realize where jessie was at stability/package wise. Debian is not my main distro anymore but I used to build custom debian systems a while back, and wanted to do another as a #! tribute or whatever. I hope to have my work posted later tonight.

Be fruitful and prosper, as corenominal wishes. Install jessie, install openbox and your other session components, configure them and explain what you did. Post screenshots in the Screenshot thread.

I'm on board with this. I started tuning a system and install scripts last night... but I am using sid. Using Jessie is where you guys are trying to steer people?

damnit #! forums! i'm supposed to be working but now all I want to do is install dwm. I cant see it being a short job though...

It's easy.

Install depends:

apt-get install libx11-dev libxinerama-dev xfonts-terminus

Get the source code:

Extract the source, cd to that dir and run:

make install clean

That's it.

Edit/disclaimer: I've found this method to be the easiest for me. I use patches so I grab the source code and make install.

If this trend continues we might end up needing a own thread for some vim-awesomeness. big_smile

If you want to read some cool stuff on and around vim take a look at usevim, vimcasts or vimbits (My .vimrc is pretty small and simple, but I've made good use of some things I found on this page.). Sometimes /r/vim on reddit is good too. is very good, as well as his book.
These vim tutorial videos really helped me learn a lot, fast - I highly recommend them:

My work laptop, JWM on Debian Wheezy, mild/conservative customization.  Just enough to get things done.  I haven't even thought about Linux for the past 6 months or so since it's just been working for me like a charm :-D  Thus explaining my prolonged absence.

I happened to install Kubuntu on my Mac Mini... pictures to come in the future... which reminded me about Linux forums and stuff...

I like this look, and have an older pc I want to use jwm on. Can I see your configs please?
