In Debian, yes (my first contact with Debian was just a year ago). For
instance, I don't know the why of the codenames/number decision, because
I was not there and did not follow the discussion :-)

Yes, I'm using linux for several years (as both, user and admin), but not
Debian. And migration from other distribution is not always that easy,
you need to get some background first (there are many things that change
and you have to find out the better way for doing the same things in a
different form), so in this regard you are happy as a sandboy: all is new
and exciting again, but you also miss some little things, like this.

Greetings,
