It's Not Magic, It's Work!

X.Org

I'm running Debian Etch as my desktop system. Every few days I update the software on it, with the latest versions. When it's a big change I cringe and hide behind the sofa in case something breaks horribly. So far running testing, I've been caught out once in 12 months but it's still stressful changing big pieces of a working system.

Today I upgraded from XFree86 to X.Org. I was worried that the funky nvidia drivers would break, and I'd be left without a functioning GUI. After a few minutes it's all done, and X is running again.

Many thanks the the excellent work done by the Debian people!
