This is where you and I obivously differ in opinion. I don't
want to see yet another distribution. I want to see the strengths
of both combined into one or the other. Don't care which.
Currently we have different means to the same end. There is
strength in numbers and splitting the community again because you
like your xterm's background blue and I like my compiler to be
egcs just isn't an effort I'm interested in.
We should focus our efforts on putting our collective knowledge
into "fixing what's broke with the dists we have" and iff when
people have proven to be unreceptive (and they won't be because
we are going to give them the best of both worlds) should we
even consider YAD (yet another distribution).
My $0.02 anyway.
