There's already a reaction to that:Been using Debian Bookworm 12 for a couple weeks now it works great here. And yes, Chris it now comes with non-free firmware and drivers for most devices. So works out of the box for me. There are those who of course decry the move but in the long run it will make Debian more appealing to the newbies and oldies alike
That is the plan. I doubt I will notice any real differences between Debian 12 and Debian 11. Debian 11 is still "current" until the end of the day, I guess.Best way to see if it fits your needs, try it out.
It's a shame. The other day I tested with Spiral Linux with Cinnamon D.E., which had only one great problem: using the CTRL key in a favorite Windows program with Wine. The key was totally dead. So that time I installed a distro I decided to raise it to "Bookworm" status. Got something that was the same desktop less attractive than eg. Ubuntu Cinnamon, and Nemo holding up many times while navigating directories. It didn't have the CTRL key problem anymore. I should have investigated how much RAM it required, but I believed I could do better than that. Did the same thing earlier with GNOME and LXQt but the RAM consumption should be the same or higher. Didn't like LXQt, kept GNOME so far.This is a big NO for my 4g ram laptops, Cinnamon uses that much too or only KDE?
