On PCs, Jessie doesn't appear to have too many surprises in it compared 
with earlier versions. I'm much too busy to have tried it on an RPi yet.

The major "gotcha" is that you can't (by default) SSH into it as root, 
which causes problems if you need to run a GUI (i.e. not just console 
I/O) program as root with the X11 stuff passing over the SSH connection.
