I prefer to use aptitude full-upgrade routinely - but I have the code

if i use Squeeze (the code name) instead stable, sid or anything.

I'm afraid that I don't understand you. Why should you have a system
i know my question regarding comparing Windows and Linux a bit
No, it is not annoying - merely somewhat difficult to follow. Here, we have
been an all-Unix house for some years. We were all-Linux until recently, but
my granddaughter has a new laptop, which is a Mac with OSX, so still Unix.
So I am not very au fait with Windows problems.
but i had bad experiences with upgrading windows from one
version to another one. and in linux i just run the command "ap-get
upgrade" and after few minutes i was working in wheezy regardless of

windows can turn people's life to nightmare. actually i am the only
resource in system and network in my company and i am the only one who
is motivating management to shift to linux. so i am a bit scared.
because this is new world to me.
Your description of life under Windows shows why many of us simply don't use

Just ask whenever there is something you don't understand. One of the
beauties of this list is that it is a) large and b) worldwide. So, what with
all the different time zones there is always someone around.
And yes, you will soon get used to Linux. But from what you say, I really
would stick to Squeeze for now, provided that it is OK on your hardware. Get
it going rock-solid and you will soon win converts. Time enough to fly in
the rarefied regions of pinning and mixed systems when you have really found
