An abrupt End to Debian Live

Debian can be great.

But depending on who you are, where you come from, and who your friends are, Debian can also be hateful and full of deceit.

Before even more of reality[0] is spin-doctored into some distorted[1] view of it, and before my past work is being discredited, I will take the high road and continue my work on Debian Live images on the outside.

If there is one thing I did learn over the past years of agressions towards me, then that it is this: I am forced to blindly and unchallenged accept everything others decide about me or my work, resistence to the cabal is futile, anything goes, no[2] matter[3] what[4].

Therefore, after having founded Debian Live back in 2006 and having by now almost 10 years continuously worked on it, without further ado:

  Debian Live is dead, hijacked by the debian-cd and the
  debian-installer Teams[5]

The live.debian.net server will be shut down end of month, the Git repositories are read-only as of now and mirrored to GitHub[6] for archival.

So long, and thanks for all the fish[7].
