Speaking of which: there was a somewhat related comment from GregkH
'I seriously wonder how much longer a "general" distribution such as
Gentoo or Debian can keep up the charade of trying to provide all
options for all users.'
'I strongly recommend tightly-coupled distros for desktops for
anyone (like Fedora or openSUSE or Ubuntu), and Debian or Gentoo only
for servers or embedded systems"'
And then, there is this statement about the core distro:
"There are a number of folk in the Linux ecosystem pushing for a
small core of tightly coupled components to make the core of a modern
linux distro. The idea is that this “core distro” can evolve in sync
with the kernel, and generally move fast. This is both good for the
overall platform and very hard to implement for the “universal”
I thought I'd pass it along, since it mentions "Debian" multiple times.
