However, Ubuntu is not based on Debian stable. That does make a difference. 
This means Debian is ill suited to older hardware (kernel 3.16 for Jessie, 
for example).

I would like to mention SolydXK, a rolling distribution based on Debian 
stable. Works very well, comes with sudo but easily converted to su (*much* 
easyer than Ubuntu) and I could even install kernel 4.8 without any problem.

TDE of course installs following the Debian instructions.
