Debian Squeeze beta- a first look

Filed under
Linux

OK, this is still a beta, so any nits found here may be fixed before release, but these are my first impressions of Debian Squeeze Beta.

The good:

* Squeeze can use my graphics card, and I could install Compiz. I had to install some kernel firmware first, but after that there were no problems.

* Squeeze can play my media files- in Lenny I had to install GStreamer plugins and MPlayer from debian-multimedia.org before I could play some files. The movie player in Squeeze can fast forward in video files and switch to different points in the file with ease, where the player in Lenny couldn't.
