Debian 12 will arrive next week with more than 100 unresolved bugs

The release of Debian 12, also known by the code name Bookworm, will take place next Saturday, June 10, and according to Phoronix it is a “questionable” move because the RC version (release candidate for its acronym in English) will arrive with about 100 bugs pending to be resolved.

According to the team responsible for the development of Debian 12:

There are still about 100 known bugs in the RC version affecting Debian 12, but we have accepted a release with those bugs. Most of them will be mentioned in the release notes. Undoubtedly, more issues will be encountered post-launch when running on more systems.”

Is this a serious problem for the user, is it an abnormality? Not really, it is impossible to release software in a state of absolute perfection , and when it comes to operating systems, bugs and unresolved issues are common, without going any further, Windows has also been released with numerous known issues pending resolution, and later Others have been discovered as said operating system was used on different computers.

SteamOS used, in its version for Steam Machines, Debian 8 as a base

The important thing, in this case, is that as it is the release of the first version of Debian 12, users are adequately notified of these errors, and that little by little they are resolved in future updates. In this sense, this Linux distro stands out for the release every few months of new ISOs that mark a new “launch point”, and that usually contain numerous bug fixes.

And speaking of new ISOs, Debian 12.1 is expected to arrive during the month of July, which means that we will only have to wait a month to be able to install an improved version that will significantly reduce the number of bugs present. If you really want to use Debian in this case, the ideal would be to wait for version 12.1.

Debian is not the most popular Linux distro at the level of general consumption, that honor goes to Ubuntu, but it is an important distro that has been gaining more and more weight in that market, especially as a technological base, since it is the mother distribution of Ubuntu , of which we must count the many derivatives it has, and others known as Deepin, of Chinese origin.
