I have used Ubuntu Linux for years. I enjoy using Ubuntu, but the problem I have had lately is that my hardware has aged. My desktop runs on an AMD Duron CPU. My laptop runs on an Intel Atom CPU. My next desktop will likely run with an Intel Atom. I do not have a need to be cutting edge. I simply have a need to be able to work from my computer… writing, surfing, emailing. Nothing more.
Ubuntu worked well for years, but I am tired of it not working after a fresh install or breaking after an upgrade. On the desktop, it is usually due to my NVidia video card. I do not have the time or patience to track down fixes.
Debian, on the other hand, works. I may spend time upfront configuring a few things, but I find it works and updates/upgrades smoothly.
So I contemplate switching from Ubuntu to Debian… Am I alone in this consideration?
