Mike while ASCII has been released, on my systems and I have many, it's 
not usable as a stable system.  The reason is my external HDMI screen 
video and audio go blank/black-out and then it comes back and then it 
goes blank again, over and over, not doable while using the system. 
This I have produced over and over.  Also reported on Debian User list 
by me and others.  Until fixed ASCII is not usable.

And why do you not recommend Jessie, LTS or not?
