I tested the upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to Debian 7.x (Wheezy) => it was 
complicated and the result was not good. Likewise, upgrade from Ubuntu 
12.04 to Debian 8.x (Jessie) => problems were less, but the result was 
also not good. There were still some Ubuntu configuration artefacts that 
caused problems.
