One work machine? Boo-hoo.

I have three physical machines at home and three hosted VPS's all
running Jessie (well, not all of them anymore), plus around 25
containers on those six hosts - and that is just my non-work
machines... (oh yeah, and some VirtualBox instances on various
family laptops...).

So far, the upgrades have been living up to the usual legendary
Debian upgrade goodness.

My work management system tells there are 75 servers running
Jessie (and now three running Stretch)... I'll get onto my main
work desktop near the end of the process... (the other desktop
has been running testing/Stretch for months now)

Goodbye Jessie - you served us well and we will miss you...
