I’m moving lots of my machines back to Debian in the yearning for rock solid stability and a complete distribution that just works. Debian was the first GNU/Linux I ever used as a teenager back in late 90s and I’ve fond memories of it. Starting with the official amd64 install guide. Preparation Make USB key I quickly discovered I want the image that includes proprietary firmware, so I can get my (nasty) wifi card working as quickly as possible.
