    Default Moving away from Debian Lenny?

    When will Untangle be moving away from Debian Lenny? I just noticed on the Debian Wikipedia page that Lenny ended support on 2/6/2012:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian#Release_history

    While I realize that the UVM is really what matters, it is always good-practice to run on a supported underlying operating system.

    Additionally, from what I've read over the years on these forums, it sounds like Untangle would benefit from upgrading away from Lenny. For one example, see:

    Everyone should be warned, while Squeeze is a nice upgrade in many respects. I find the mechanism it uses to control startup to be far more cumbersome. And, to make matters worse, it tends to not display the grub menu when running in a virtualized environment.

    So when Untangle does make the switch it will open doors for many things like integrated wireless, but it will also cause some new issues to smooth out. I'm excited about it, but also worried about it.

    Luckily, we worry about all that so our customers don't have to.

    True, but heads up none the less!

    I'm still converting VMs from Debian 5 to 6. Most of them move over naturally.

    Xen introduces even more strangness into this mess because what is reported by Xen to be /dev/hda is actually /dev/sda in the guest. Even when it's supposed to be /dev/vxda... One of the upsides is that Debian 6 appears to be capable of reconfiguring /etc/fstab for you on boot. So the OS is even more portable than ever, it's very image friendly.
