If you have an earlier Debian version (6.0), upgrades to Debian 7.0 from the previous release, (remember”Squeeze”), are automatically handled by the apt-get package management tool for most configurations. Without any downtime, Debian systems may be upgraded painlessly. Debian has a solid reputation with its key strengths of having an amazing volunteer base, being dedicated to the Debian Social Contract and Free Software, and making a solid commitment to providing the best operating system possible. You might wonder why I am mentioning moving companies and particularly Oasis Moving, but I happen to be in the middle of planning a move for my elderly parents from Las Vegas, which is certainly a far way from Uruguay, to CA. And I couldn’t help but think how incredible the free Debian operating system is. How amazing that it is developed by thousands of volunteers from all over the world who collaborate via the Internet while here I am totally twisted into knots trying to plan what should on the face of it, be a simple move. Are there any folks in Las Vegas who can volunteer to help me out? Well, I did get a text from one friend and let me tell you, it was not a text I ever expected to receive. “Help”, he texted. “How can I acquire a diy std test for stds?” Oh, boy. I suggested he just go to see his family doctor, but he wanted to keep the “need” under wraps for now. Google home test for STD and see what comes up. I actually googled “home testing for STD” and found several sites selling STD test kits you can get results in about 15 minutes. I found the week wait for the kit to be delivered a bit long, but most sites allowed over night delivery for an extra fee. I sent the websites I found and wished him Good Luck or something like that. Later when I spoke with him on the phone, he said the test result was negative and his symptoms had disappeared, But he became rather paranoid , so he ended up going to his family physician who tested him again. His results were also negative the second time around, so that’s a relief.
Anyway, you can install Debian 7.0 on computers ranging from handheld systems to supercomputers, and most nearly everything in between those two extremes. And for those who want to simply try Debian 7.0 without having to install it, you will be surprised BUT you can use a special image, known as a “live image”, available for CDs, USB sticks, and netboot setups. “Wheezy” is great … give Debian 7.0 a try. We are certain that you will like all the results from the newly updated system.
