Give me a break!
RedHat sucks is not a technical argument. We have each (Debian and RedHat)
been willing to steal good ideas from the other in the past, and I don't
see any reason to reject ideas simply because of their source.
I see no substance in the above reply.
Where is the statment that says: "A set of well defined scripts for init
scripts to use is a bad idea because..."?
We all _know_ that Debian is better than anything, specially RedHat, but
even a blind monkey finds the banana sometimes ;-)
So, lets hear more pro/con arguments about the idea, and stop bashing the
origins of it.
I need to hear about technical details of this proposal. RH bashing is
just a waste of good bandwidth.
