Hop: First steps with Debian 8 “Jessie”

I’ve always felt like I should be running Debian Linux (for obvious — if you know me — reasons) but never have… until yesterday: I have my Asus netbook now running the newly-released Debian 8 “Jessie” release. So far, about all I have done is install, make sure everything is working, and do a bit of typical performance tuning (I/O scheduler, /etc/fstab options, swappiness) to take advantage of the SSD.

More to come…
