Why do we have to be a part of an industry? Debian would be commercial if we
truely cared about the industry...

It's useful enough for a lot of people.

How horrible, disastrous! :>

A lot of people (including me) run kernel 2.2 on slink machines just fine.

FWIW all these arguments how "we shall all die in disgrace if we don't get
2^32 releases out in the next ten years" and similar, are a huge pile of
junk (no offense, nothing personal). To release faster would be great, but
no market pressure or yet another non-technical flamewar on debian-devel
will help.

Let's just get back to work... I have a ppp NMU to do :)
