Re: Upgrade from stretch to buster possible?

There will be some advice on migrating from stretch to buster in tomorrow's blog post.

We don't support it - we recommend starting with a clean image - but there are some instructions you can try at your own risk.

Re: Does cloning an SD clone the Pi's MAC address?

Piclone should have some boxes on the menu for "Is this a backup for this Raspberry? [Y/N]" "Is this a copy for a different machine? [Y/N]" (obviously mutually exclusive). A strange usage of the word "should" there, given that it was me who wrote Piclone. So I think it's probably up to me to decide...

Re: Difference between "Raspbian Stretch with desktop" and "Raspbian Stretch with desktop and recommended software"

To be honest, going forward, I would expect the vast majority of downloads to be the basic version without Recommended Software.

I also miss the possiblity to chose language EN with country DE for example.
As above - if you want en_DE as a locale, you need to create it and submit it to Debian.

"sudo apt-get purge qt5ct" is all you need to do.
