I have gotten fed up with the things we lost going to stretch. So I decided to see what the options are, it turns out that Jessie is an LTS release supported for almost another year (until June 2020).
This gives me plenty of time to find an alternative Linux Distro that still has many of the packages maintained that Jessie has and Stretch lacks. I do not like having to build everything I want to use (spend more time building than using).
So again thank you for basing Raspbian on Debian ARMHF.
