Flash used to be the only way to unlock all the wonders of the internet: watching cat videos, viewing nifty Flash sites and playing Flash video games. For a great out-of-the-box experience, it was important to pre-install Flash on all our systems --- until now. #farewell  
Read our blog to find out why we're no longer pre-installing Flash on our systems. We also provide tips on how to return to Flash if you still need it. http://blog.system76.com/post/124110683268/farewell-flash

Tried the #Ubiquity binaries from #Ubuntu on #Debian . For the most part it just worked and I have a working installed #Jessie system. This live media happened to have the correct diskdefines file and other configuration files and manifests stored. What surprised me is that it just worked with a default debian-live with the squashfs images stored in /live on the CD media (as apposed to casper and having the images stored on /casper). Some fine-grained keyboard shortcut options were missing but I guess that should be an easy fix. Next up to get these properly ported with source packages for jessie and sid. #debianitp
