drupal & drush install on wheezy

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
Turns out wheezy has Drupal 7 and Drush in the repos.
In theory I could just install Drush and install latest core from Drush.
Any downside to that?

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ As longs as it's the latest version of Drupal (which it should be installed from Drush) it should rock. Drush (Thanks to a loud Brit for the intro) is pretty awesome.

=============================================================== From: Lee Walker ------------------------------------------------------ drush is the damn bees knees. I use it for pretty much everything. I working my way through a series of 'programming for drush' so all my custom modules will also be drush enabled :D

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ I don't really know what Drush is, but my general advice regarding installing from Repo and then upgrading via other means usually means a whole punch of pain. And if Drush is just a package or extension of Drupal... a php database web-abb, quit being lazy and just install the damn thing from source.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ Just following up after educating myself as to what Drush is. I stand by my previous assertions. One being, pick your poison, distro or other means, and never cross the streams. Second being, as convenient as #apt-get install drupal drush I find in practice that it takes more time to undo the settings made to my system that I *don't* want (server-wide /alias, root of default vhost, etc) than it would have been to download the source and install it how *I* want it installed. Plus, you'll need to "pin" or otherwise avoid apt either mixing some things up, or giving you nasty errors about updates.....
