Dru Lavigne made me do it: I killed Debian, installed an unbootable Ubuntu, now I’m running FreeBSD 8.0 with GNOME
I’ve been running Debian Lenny since December and haven’t been in the distro hunt and done little but complain about Xorg sucking the very soul from anybody using Intel video chips that haven’t been made in the past year or so. More here
First I tried to fix the sound and video problems I’d been having in my recently upgraded Debian Squeeze install, which didn’t go particularly well at all. I managed to kill X completely with one of my package reinstallation experiments. I probably could’ve saved the install, but I already had a backup and was ready to move on.
