Warning: the (brief) rantings of an extremely frustrated developer lie

On the flip side, that open development model and dedication to
quality, when combined with a lot of indiferrence and lack of
leadership, means public releases only get made about once every two
years.  Debian had a mostly libc6 based system long before RedHat, yet
RedHat is releasing their second libc6 system while Debian still has
no clue when, or even if, it will release.  

I am so sick of the internal bickering and never ending delays
associated with Debian, that I am seriously considering switching to
RedHat 5.1 (bugs and all) when I get my complimentary CD next week.  I
figure if I simply redirect the work I would have spent on Debian to
fixing the problems in RedHat, I'll be that much better off.
