For what it is worth, I do not agree with this process. I
still think that libc-dev should come with a snapshot of the full

I would lean towards correctness rather than popularity. If I
wanted a popular, shoddy system, I would stay with windows. If
people are going to be making decisions on shallow reasons like those

I'm thinking about DIGITAL READ-OUT systems and computer-generated
IMAGE FORMATIONS ...
