Hi, does lenny have a live cd?-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: RIPEMD160 I never used Ubuntu so can't make an accurate comparison. But I've been using Debian Testing (Lenny) for the past couple months now and I haven't really had any problems to speak of. It is plenty stable. It uses Gnome 2.24.1 but I use SVN orca because I want to keep up with the latest accessibility stuff. In several ways, I would say that Gnome / Orca under Debian has proven to be more stable and more robust under Debian than with Slackware and Dropline. No complaints here; I would go for it, if I were you. You don't have to wory about that pulse audio garbage either.

I am planning to shift to lenny from ubuntu. Is it worth going for? Is lenny stable with gnome 2.23 or 24? Is it ready for prime time use so that I completely replace ubuntu? happy hacking.

I just went to lock the screen from the main start menu and was surprised to find that it talks now. I thought that was always silent. Well, at least, I never tried it with Debian but it was always silent with Slackware/Dropline. Does this mean that the login under GDM will now also be accessible? I'm too chicken to try it right this moment so I thought I would throw the question out there to see if I've been some exciting news or what. Again, the login prompt under a locked screen talks for me now. and I would suppose the screen saver would probably also talk. if auto timed out. Right now, I have it set throw up the screen saver and not lock the screen but now I may go ahead and set that up now that it talks.

By the way, I have installed opensuse 11.1 and orca does talk on the lock screen window. some of the admin functions are also accessible out of the box it seems. I switch to super user mode and can gedit the documents that are restricted without any problem.
